"Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality." - Emily Dickinson


I’ve screamed until my lungs pop out;

I’ve cried until my eyes became as swollen as 

My bleeding, bruised heart. 


The veins are snapping in my soul;

My limbs slowly tear off my body.

Soon my stomach will tumble right out too. 


My head pounds like the pouring rain,

My heart beats even faster;

I need you in my life. 

I need you.


I think I’m going to lose a foot 

If I don’t walk with you,

Or my hands will come off first

If they can no longer hold yours. 


Please don’t leave me here in this dark world;

You switch off the light switch of my life 

Every time you walk out the door.
