Falling

He had always known that she’d fallen for him, that she thought it would somehow change her, change her life.

He could feel her love pulling him down, and he had to make her believe that he didn’t want to be caught, that he didn’t care.

He couldn’t do it to her, couldn’t let her believe that any hope was possible.

He would always remember her from the times when leaving was furthest from his mind, before the urge to reach for her was so strong that it threatened to kill him alive.
