You're Not Here. I'm Not Here.

You're not here. I'm not here. Apart.
Yet, I find myself completely consumed in you
Every shard of your reflection cast into my heart
A beautiful array of shimmering perfection

You're gone. I'm gone. Vacant.
Still I find each moment, the fragments of once been
Compiling into dreams of which I cannot awaken
Nightmare to most and daydream to which I divide

You're broken. I'm broken. Mess.
Let the wind blow my brittle remains into yours
As I slowly wither into nothing, breathe into you my last breath
We become something bigger, our wild leaves depart into the wind

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I feel every ounce of the pain you're enduring.
The second I wrap my arms around you will be the last second you'll ever spend alone.


It's like being separated by a wall of glass. I can put my hand onto yours through the murky cold barrier, but you cannot feel it. Please know that you're not alone, I know your pain, I know how it feels. All I wish of you is to get better.
