New Poem - Lungs

I breathed you in
filled my lungs with the scent of you
swallowed your words like candy
drank each moment till it was dry
I let you hold me
let you break and mould me
gave you my body in all its flaws
till every inch flushed red for you.
I hurt for you
wept till there was no more tears for you
believed I was better for my weakness
grew stronger for being without you
I loved you unconditionally
in every way possible accepted you, but
I never expected you to be
any less giving to me.

It wasn't us.
It wasn't you.
It wasn't me.
We just both needed to breathe...
