Remnants of hope

You seemed to disappear,
No trace left and no time to prepare,
You're a malevolent ghost,
Unseen, unheard yet slowly killing me,
You're absence is detrimental,
Taking me apart on the inside ,
Leaving me to appear
I am now a puzzle with scattered pieces, Forcing myself together just for their purpose,
I am nothing but a display,
Designated to keep them satisfied,
To preserve their perspective of life,
I am seen as ungrateful since your absence,
Seen as crazy or spoiled for taking life as a challenge,
For seeing life with no purpose but death,
For not understanding why you shouldn't die young.
When all you see and feel is nothing,
Do you even exist?

This is amazing! You truly do have talent. Here's an answer to the question at the end of your poem: If you can write a poem this beautiful and have the courage to share it, then YES! I know it's hard to face life sometimes - I've been there - but please don't give up, the world needs your writing!
