My Last Breath

My last breath
Before you sleep take my last breath from my soul
For I weep from the pain
A pain so pensiveness it withers my insides away
I have lost you in a place I felt safe, now I’m surrounded by dust and fog nearly blinding my eyes
I’m scared and frightened by the rift between our hearts
I am a petrified forest with bare limbs that have been stripped and lay abandoned 
You have plundered me into twisted hemp of disarray
How could things have gone so wrong?
How could we have lost the love and luster of yesterday?
Was it really a love of reality?
Clouded by desire and hunger and waiting at the gates of deception
Eyes of jewels that spill a river far and wide
Drown me in a red sticky cancer 
Shattered glass a portrait preview of two fractured in half
I am floating alone in cold lonely vortex of cruelty while shards of you leave me unchanged
You once needed me and made me feel alive
Now I am dying not that knowing where your feelings really lay
You say one thing then do another
So confusing to say the least
Could you be true and honest could you be clear to yourself
Before you sleep take the ache from my broken insides 
And breath my last breath

I hear the beat of a broken heart, dear Laura. This too shall pass, and you will love and be loved again. Believe me... I know this to be true.
