What You Took

You left my heart in pieces the day you stole my life. My tears have made a puddle on my kitchen floor. The puddle became a lake and I went for a swim. I swam out to the middle of that lake. I became tired and exhausted. I felt myself fall deeper into the water. I can’t breathe, I begin to panic. I try to scream, but my lungs fill with water. I feel myself go deeper still. I struggle and sink lower. I close my eyes and know that this is it. I am going to die. I open my eyes and I am in the kitchen. I never die, but I want to. You took my life when you took my heart.
