Wailing siren
Thumps in my ears
Alerting me
I must rise
I reach to your side
Of an empty bed
And tears escape
Through matted eyes
You are still gone
And the world expects me
To go on, one day at a time
As if I can function
Without you
My life, my love,
And all that makes me whole
A tower cannot stand in a storm
Without its foundation
And I tumble without you
To hold me.


Strangles my heart
The judgment before us
Encroaching on love
Evil tentacles in a murky water
Dragging and pulling me under
Red blood mixes like a doomed cocktail
I grasp for you
Holding my breath
Knowing I will drown without you
The rock and my love
That gives me life.
