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,
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.
