Porque você se foi. E não adiantou dizer que não, eu sei que nunca mais nos veremos.
E mesmo que não haja mais motivos, e mesmo sem nunca terem existido, senti como se tivessem extirpando uma parte de mim, um câncer, a dor que me acostumei a sentir.
Um dia você me viu chorar, me abraçou, me deu um beijo e insistiu em dizer "tchau" quando eu tinha tanto medo de te perder, porque nunca tive. Agora é simplesmente nunca mais, e adeus.


- Are you as bored by that crowd as I am?

- I didn't come here for the party. I came here for you. I've watched you for days. You're everything a man could ever want. It's not just your face, your figure, or your voice. It's your eyes. All the things I see in your eyes.

- What is it you see in my eyes?

- I see a crazy calm. You're sick of running. You're ready to face what you have to face. But you don't want to face it alone.

-No. I don't want to face it alone.

The wind rises electric.
She's soft and warm and almost weightless. Her perfume a sweet promise that brings tears to my eyes.
I tell her that everything will be all right. That I'll save her from whatever she's scared of and take her far, far away.
I tell her I love her.

The silencer makes a whisper of the gunshot.
I hold her close until she's gone.

I'll never know what she was running from.
