Arms of a shadow

I look fine on the outside…
But I’m crying and crumbling to 
pieces on the inside…
I can’t get over it, I’ve tried….
This hits me so hard I go insane…

to leave…
Where did that go? I miss it so…
We are so far apart, but you remain 
in my heart…
You gave me the news… I had no 
Idea what to do.
I had no clue was it real? Was it 
I fall backwards to fall into the arms

Looking behind, but nothing to find.
I sit on my bed …
Every moment I dread.
Beads of sorrow fall upon my face,
The slow and dreadful pace..

I say this has no faze to me,
But really…this is killing me…

    You have some good descriptive words. Check the second line of your last verse. Did you really want to use the word "Your" instead of "Tour"? This may merely be a typographical error since the "T" key is situated next to the "Y" key on any standard computer keyboard.
