Heart racing, I'm
aching...so much
Pain
Fear of the
unknown
Somebody please,
Help me!
Trapped in a world
Of grief and loss
How could you not
Be real?
Hands shaking,
I can't touch
Blood boiling,
I'm about to faint
Eyes blazing, full
Of haze
Crying tears of
Blood
Vision gone
Coughing up words
Of love
Yet, feeling so much
Hate
Head pounding,
I can't think
Ears ringing,
I can't hear
Body numb,
I can't feel
World shattered
Nothing left....
Lifeless
Meaningless
Breath taken me
Loosing you
Loosing me
Loosing we
Slowly
Drowning
Vital signs gone
Accepting the
Abyss
Happiness gone
No more dissecting
The known
As I cradle the
Strength of grief
Drifting
Drifting
Drifting
Gone

My sista

the prognosis for "dying love" is always grim....you took me through all the emotional/physical changes (been there b 4) that overtake us when the love, our very breath, is gone.

Say that!

Thank you Poet!

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
