"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

when you left
when you left
when you left

I stopped writing
the muse fell short
in the failings of my breath

I started painting red lines
dreaming of sickness
and pouring rain

i never knew how
blurry and hazed
the world could become

as night pushes towards my lungs
i start to cough up reasons
why i cant breathe without you near

the blackness is in my veins
straggling within me now.

when  you left
death started to heave again
