sleepless nights
wakeless mornings
thoughtless trance
Although my body moves along
my mind remains fixated
on the epitome of pulchritude

Perpetual dominance of my thoughts;
The longer we are apart,
The more my mind slowly rots
You’ve captivated more than just my heart
You took my mind and my soul
Without you, I will never be whole

I know I should progress
but my mind only lets me regress
back into this helpless state
unable to think of anything else

    Lovely write Alex! The mind is a powerful tool especially when thoughts threaten to overwhelm you. You've tied up the theme to the title very well. Nice!

    sux to be helpless .. to be thinkin of some one but...u r whole when ur by urself .. but it feels more like a hole till u give half to someone else.. but they have to give u half back too so they can make room and they cant jus give you all bad or all good or it will never work.. they have to give u the missing pieces...then it locks in place.. then that love will never go away... so dont be helpless theres always another day... great write.. have a blessed day :)
