Final words scratched
onto a legally worthless document
life signed away
in blood like ink

“i loved you, 'til my heart lost its beat”

his body
in unrecognizable pieces
my worst nightmare

i had dreamt for months now
of feeling his lips
dance on mine

praying his cold tags
would never return home, without him

my prayers left unanswered
as his love disappears
six feet beneath the warmth of mine
