You stand right in front of me,
Looking wretched, devastated.
Your eyes a dull red,
Still traces of droplets on your cheeks.
I’ve never seen you like this before…….
I reach you and clasp you,
You keep standing still like a statue,
Lifeless, hollow, strangely hushed…..
Not a word do you say,
Looking at me with all the passion in your eyes,
You start stepping back,
Away, further away from my life.
I try to hold on to you,
But you slip away from me
Your blunt face, sadness etched upon every inch…..
You stare coldly at me, as you recede.
I shout, “No, don’t leave me please…..”
My voice don’t reach you,
You keep moving back, away from me
Fading into the eternal black.
I try to advance, try to reach you,
Try to stop you from wherever you’re going…..
But I’m incapable…….
Standing stiff, feeling fragile and feeble.
I sink to the cold, dark floor,
No more can I see you,
I lie on the ground, closing my eyes,
As sleep shrouds me, peace touching my life!
