a/n: First mxwriters’ lyrical writing piece. This is my first complete writing that is not my series. Didn’t plan for this to be the first, but I couldn’t find inspirations for the other writing pieces. This one is kinda short but hope you guys enjoy and give me some feedback. Gif is not mine, so credit to the owner.
This is our last night but it’s late
And I’m trying not to sleep
Cause I know, when I wake,
I will have to slip away
The bed had a warmth that you knew you’d miss. Kihyun laid next to you, one arm around your waist, the other under his pillow. His soft black hair fell on his face, splitting just a bit at the forehead. It was late, but both of you couldn’t bear to fall asleep. The tiredness in his eyes was evident, but he continues to stare deep into your eyes, taking in all the beauty of your face, brushing away the few strands of hair that fell in in your face to admire all your features. “Kihyun, go to sleep, tomorrow is an important day,” you looked over to your alarm clock to see that is was already 3:37. “I’m trying not to sleep because I know that when the morning comes, I’ll have to slip away.
I’ll have to leave soon
Why am I holding on?
We knew this day would come
We knew it all along
How did it come so fast ?
“Why are you like this?” you knew you didn’t really want to say this, “You’ll finally have a chance to debut. I’m just holding you back.” Debuting had always been Kihyun’s dream. He met you in high school, and you knew that one day, this would be your reality…without him. “Why are you holding on? You can go pursue your dreams, be famous, sing and perform in front of thousands of fans.” He was quiet for a moment, taking into consideration all that you had said. It was true, he knew that he couldn’t have both. A relationship would either ruin his career or bring problems into your life. “We both knew this day would come, it just came so fast. We knew it was going to happen all along, yet we risked it. I never wanted to be away from you y/n, never will. And here I am staring at your perfection, in my arms, so beautiful”
I never want it to stop
Because I don’t wanna start all over
I was afraid of the dark
But now it’s all that I want
You felt selfish, to keep this perfect man to yourself; you felt like you were keeping him from his dreams and goal, that you were the weight pulling him down. “I knew this would happen. I love you Kihyun, but I never wanted to start this because I knew we’d have to part ways. And if by the rare chance that we meet again, we would have to start all over. Who knows if we’ll still be in love.” Tears threatened to fall as Kihyun lightly caressed your cheek and planted a soft kiss on your forehead, pulling you in closer to his warm and loving embrace. “Shh, y/n, don’t think about it like that,” you dug your head into his chest, sniffling on his shirt as he continued. “I had a great time with you. You taught me how to love. You inspired me to sing. You helped me overcome my fear of rejection. I owe all my success to you,” he patted you head lovingly as he heard your muffled cries, “Tonight I’m gonna hold you so close. I don’t want to leave you y/n.” He hummed a lullaby to sooth you, rocking you back and forth in his arms, calming you in and instant. Sleep was not your intention, but his hushed, sweet voice put you in a relaxed, peaceful nap.
The sky is getting bright,
the stars are burning out
Somebody slow it down
Before you knew it, you woke up at 6:23, staring out your window to see the sunrise at the brink of the horizon. Your loving boyfriend rest next to you, his eyes close and his breathing calm and even. “The skies are getting brighter. The stars are burning out,” you quietly whispered, sadness traced your voice. “Someone go slow it down,” Kihyun replied, eyes opening slowly to meet your gaze, “I don’t want this to end.” You sat up in bed, avoiding his gaze and holding back tears. He let out a sigh before pulling himself out of bed, grabbing his t-shirt from the closet before walking back and standing in front of you. You got up and embraced him, head buried in the crook of his neck, arms around his waist. He wrapped his arms around you and caressed your head, allowing you to spill whatever tears were left. You both stood there in silence, not wanting to leave from each other’s embrace. Finally, Kihyun let go of your waist, holding you by your arms and stared at your standing figure. He was going to miss all this: your beautiful smile, the way you laugh, the tantrums you have, those night where you’d spend watching movies, those days that you both needed to cry, the secrets you’d spill randomly as you fell asleep, the random hugs and kisses you’d bring him. He would miss going out on dates with you, all those study sessions and late-night snacks, the way you’d be shy to hold his arm or cling to him whenever you went to the amusement parks.
When the sun comes up, I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memory
“This is my last glance that will soon become a memory. I love you, y/n, don’t ever forget that. You will always be in my heart on those tough days that I have. Thank you for everything you’ve given me. I love you.” He leaned in and placed a soft but passionate kiss on your lips. You wanted more, but his lips left yours before he took one last glance at you, and walked out the door, not looking back, leaving you with one last kiss. The tears that you tried so hard to hold back came in a rush, spilling from your eyes as you collapse to the floor. Your heart ached to see him leave. All the memories that you guys had built up were let go with a single kiss. You clutched your shirt, you heart pounding, knowing that was the last time you’d get to see Yoo Kihyun that you knew and had to yourself.
Cause in the daylight we’ll be on our own
