Love Lost

byAurora Black©

He's gone, and I am left behind
With an empty heart and no more tears to cry.
I want to tear out my hair, break everything,
Scream out my pain and rage at the clear blue sky.

The world continues on as if nothing is wrong.
How can that be? How can I remain strong
In the face of despair? How can I cope?
My love is gone. Will I lose all hope?

One day at a time, says the old motto.
I sleep and wake alone, my heart beating a rapid staccato
From the realization that he is no longer beside me.
I have lost him, and in doing so I've lost a part of me.
