Without You


Emotions are dying,

punctured by

shards of my dream,

as our love

explodes around us,

and happiness is

a fading scream

that ricochets

through my mind,

scattering fragments


and I watch in numbed silence—

all I can do is stare

as my life is reduced to rubble,

nothing left but shattered hope,

and I’m not sure

I can do it;

I’m not sure I can cope

without you.
