It's so much easier to die for someone than to live your life for them. But the stained mug and the scattered sheets of paper on my table tell me that I will. I know you're no longer there, but I tell myself that just because I don't see you doesn't mean you don't see me. So I hold true to myself and you, and try to be the person I think you'd have wanted me to be. I breathe for you, still, chasing after the ghosts of the past. But you're no longer there, and I'm no longer alive.
