My Broken Heart

I miss…
so much,
a place to belong.

I miss…
so much
it literally hurts.

You were
all I ever knew
of home.

My heart is in pain;
there’s a hole
inside me
that nothing
besides you
can fill.

And the tears...
they won't stop.

Even my mind
won't give you up.

I don’t want
to forget
how it felt
to be at home.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Inspired by Finding Nemo quote: No. No, you can't... STOP. Please don't go away. Please? No one's ever stuck with me for so long before. And if you leave... if you leave... I just, I remember things better with you. I do, look. P. Sherman, forty-two... forty-two... I remember it, I do. It's there, I know it is, because when I look at you, I can feel it. And-and I look at you, and I... and I'm home. Please... I don't want that to go away. I don't want to forget.
