Without you

 Been over several months and 
I haven't let go of you. 
 It's Christmas Eve and the 
thought of you brings me to 
tears.
 Seeing the untouched pale 
skin on my finger puts my mind 
in dark a place. 
 Without hesitation, I slash my 
wrist with the used blade that 
you had stabbed me with. 
 As blood drips on the royal 
blue blanket, you once have 
gave me, I realize, there is no 
going back. 
 I wrap the belt, your belt, 
around my  neck. In the closet 
that both of us know inside and 
out. 
 As I finally kick the stool from 
under myself. 
 The weight on my shoulders 
from the world pushes my body 
towards the earth as this noose 
of despair slowly tightens until 
I no long can breath. 
 As the memories of us slowly 
fade to darkness. And the 
bright light I thought you were, 
slowly dimmers.
 Each gasp of air I try to take. 
Only brings the pain You 
caused back.
 My last and final thought 
forces it self Into my depleting 
oxygen brain... 
 The thought that always and 
will stay with me.... I miss 
you...
