POV Thursday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then It Came The Day I Had To Leave Him

POV Thursday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then it came the day I had to leave him. I had barely slept, too hungover, too anxious, unable to tell both feelings apart. He was sleeping like a baby – probably because of all the wine and grapa he drank. I was up before dawn, went to the balcony and watched the city change its colors as the sun kept rising on that warm early morning. I stared out of our balcony, searching for answers to questions I was afraid to ask myself because I already knew the answers. I looked for a reason to stay, besides him. I looked for a reason to go, besides going back to my life. But when I looked back into the room and saw him, it was all very obvious to me; I wasn't going back to my life, I was leaving it. He was my life. For six weeks, he was my life. There I was, staring out of those French doors, like one stares at the ocean, only to realize I was staring at the wrong side. There it was... my sea of quietude before the breaking of waves, lying on that bed; there it was my calm, my storm; my body, my soul; my reality, my dream; my life, my death. That morning right before I left I knew: I had given him my heart at day one. It was only later in life that I realized I forgot to claim it back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
