I Am Gone

Dark night, full moon,
the wind bites my skin,
Killing any sensational touches
the air is toxic,
the poison kills my brain cells
My feet won't respond, won't follow my commands
So I sit here freezing
waiting for you to come
waiting for your arms to pull me into an embrace,
for the heat of your body to warm my soul.
I sit under the willow,
with a wilted flower as my only company.
Hear footsteps in the distance.
I look up, waiting to see your smiling face.
the footsteps emerge and descend once again
My wilted flower, the only thing sadder than I did is now dead
As the cold fills my soul, the wind surrounds me, the air suffocates me
tears start to gather and fall.
Any hope I once had has withered away
I drop the flower and stand
The hungry beasts surround me.
I return their deathly stare.
"It's time," I say to myself,not wanting to face reality.
You're not here,I will never see you again
All memories of me are gone in your head
but they take shelter in mine.
I will carry your love,
the love I could never have will be kept in a chamber to be forgotten but never lost.
thoughts of our secret meetings, our kisses,our embraces, the passion we felt float around as I watch my soul being devoured.
I am helpless,
I am defeated,
and now I'm gone.
