Without you.

Without you, I am thrown off course with no compass.
A lover no more, yet I love you no less.
Forced to re-learn past errors, trembling
under the covers of childhood lived terrors.

Without you, I am lost at sea.
Creatures of the dark await under the depths to take me.

Forever learning what I’ve been allowed to forget.
Forever repaying the heavy heart of my debt.

Without you, I am an orphan.
Picking up the pieces of who I think that I am.

Without you, I am an empty room.
Clutching at closeness, or the warmth of the womb
that you and me created,
suddenly dissipated.

Without you, I am nothing yet still me.
Without you, I am blind yet still see.
Without you, I am more of you than you will ever be of me.

  1. again amazing, reminds me of something i wrote in a similar vein; pain brings beauty into sharp relief and sometimes that sharpness never leaves but becomes an almost welcome reminder that to have felt such pain we must, at least, be alive.

  2. I guessed as much, my piece was a similar situation, well, a reflection of several similar situations over time. Maybe i’ll start a new blog for sharing some of my writing. Thanks for the inspiration and you’re welcome, you have talent and wisdom.
