Standing on embers for you

I stand here on embers for you, my feet burning.
I stand on embers after the rare friendship that
was you and I. Now it fades to ashes. We tried
so hard to communicate on a language none of
us mastered and we failed so disastrously. And
you threw me out like garbage, accusing me for
meanings never in my mind. In shock I fled you.
Time went slow and what was a few weeks were
long as decades. I suffered so hard missing you –
I never thought I would do. But without you my
heart became a deserted place and I couldn’t live
with this loss. Therefore, I’ve returned to plead
with you, standing here unarmed and with my
feet burning on the embers after what once was
you and I and all what we went through. I don’t
know if I ever can trust you again and my heart
fear you as much as it misses you. But if you let
me, I want to take the risk to be hurt again. I can
only hope you with care are able to do the same.
