I feel my body
From scalp to sole
Nothing seems to be missing
Yes, outside I am whole.
But tell me,
Did you take a rib or two
When you left me
All alone without a clue?
My breath falls short although I gasp
As if the wind is knocked out of me
The howling drowns my silent sobs
As my pillow is drenched in midnight memory.
Flashbacks loop in my restless mind
Searching for that moment
When what seemed to be eternal sunshine
Shattered into stormy fragments.
I feel my body from head to toe
Nothing more, nothing less
But here I lie, broken and blue
A man who’s incomplete without you.
