"Everything we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream." Edgar Allan Poe

Since my only love left
I feel naked and exposed
angry letters written on my bare body
hoping for my only love to return

my breath is coming shallow
and my hands are working slow
my voice is cracked and colder
since my only love left

I'm tired when I wake up
and I'm cruel to my best friends
I whisper poems under my breath
since my only love left

I'm dieing inside
and nobody can see
'cause I haven't let anybody in
since my only love left

My smile has disintegrated
my laugh is now a whimper
my eyes face the floor
and my ears do not listen

My body twitches
and my heart races
but my lungs slow
and my blood pumps quietly
and my tears drip faster
and my life gets slower
since my only love left

The author's comments:
I wrote this after I a had a seriouse fight with one of my best guy friends whom I loved secretly. Thankfully we are reunited although the tension is still quite thick. I'd like to ignolidge My best friends who helped me through so many rough spots much like the fight that resulted in the writing of this poem: Alexa, Sarah, and my mother with her quiet wisdom.
