And You're Gone

February 23, 2012
How can you dream?

When every fantasy

Was ripped from me

As my whimper turned scream.

My life was built around you,

Like a fortress by the sea;

So beautiful, unmarred.

Until a storm wrenched you from me.

Now, I wander amoung the ruins,

But you’re gone.

How can you smile genuinely?

When every moment you made me laugh

Is stuck on repeat in my mind;

Slowing down time.

The feeling in my chest

Is Love at the core,

But the pain it provides

Is staggering, if not more.

I’d love to just let go,

like the person I am.

But you’re gone.

How can you look up to the Night’s sky

And marvel at the beauty?

When all I see

Is my world floating by.

I can almost feel your arms,

Wrapped around me tight.

I can almost feel your heartbest,

Pulling me closer.

But the feeling vanishes

Like smoke on the wind,

And you’re gone.

How can you sleep?

When all the promises

You made to me

Are lying broken at your feet.

My every dream is buried

By words you said, but didn’t mean.

My Nightmares turn to dust;

They’re nothing, just the sweetest dream.

Compared to when I open my eyes

And you’re gone.
