The urge to disappear

I've been driving around lately 

trying to find a destination far away from you

But all the roads lead back to you.

There's no escaping.

We've been to too many places together.

Which means only one thing-

there are too many memories to erase.

And the saddest part of it all is that I'm too attached to you and I want to keep these memories forever.

Never to be forgotten.

You made me believe that true love exists.

And then you left.

And now you expect me to move on.

But I don't have anywhere else to go.

You were the home I always wanted.

You were the lover I always wanted.

And now you're gone.

This loneliness makes me feel detached from reality.

I'm so wrapped up in my sadness that I don't notice anything else.

This life is becoming unbearable.

I look for you everywhere I go.

I dream of bumping into you.

But one thing I know for sure is that 

the more you want something, the more it runs away from you.
