My heart cries out silently into the night
How am I to take another breath?
Two, who complete me and make my world whole,
Two, with the power of my life or my death.
The First, carried off on angel wings,
Never to touch this earth again
I made you my world, the sun in my sky
My life lived for you.
And you left me.
You left me alone to scavenge for scraps
You left me alone, unable to breathe
You left me a broken and shattered world, where once perfection had been
The Last, so far removed by space, by time
Day after day and night after night, alone
Raging hunger eats and gnaws at my soul
I need you. I love you. I want you
Where are you?
Each day that passes, another day wasted,
Each day without you, my light growing dimmer
So much pain, kept apart from the one thing that makes my heart beat again
Only ghosts and wisps of smoke
as companion, as friend, as lover
Need and desire,
an ancient memory unquenched
Arms that stay empty clawing the dark in vain
Time is the enemy and friend of no man
Fighting for hours, minutes, seconds more
Despising it for its slowness
Hating it for its speed
Hurried to take
Slowly to give
