after (ˈɑːftə/)

I tried to help you grow, they say it happens when people are loved. So I tried it, loving you mindlessly, without an agenda, without a moment of hesitation to take a breath because you took all of them away.

After a while I realized that I was breathing into you and you were gasping into me, so when you left, amongst other things, you took my lungs with you as well.
