"If I could be any part of you,
I'd be your tears;
To be conceived in your heart,
Born in your eyes,
Live on your cheeks,
And die on your lips."


Your warmth has left my body
Since the day you walked away.
Tiny shivers seeping in
To keep the sun at bay.
The cold has chilled my bones
Since you've said the last goodbye.
Silencing the part of me still hoping
That none of it was just a lie.
My skin is icy to the touch
Since you left me standing here.
But my frozen heart starts beating
With just the thought of you being near.
And since you've disappeared,
The warmth has left me cold to touch.
Slipping through all of my defences
Making wish I had been enough.

I was sifting through memories and remembered how it felt when "he" left and was shocked by how lifeless I felt. I also drew feelings from when my mom lost her husband. It's kind of a cold numbness you feel.
