I Know Who I Can't Live Without

Aquamarine dreams dashed in the blink of an eye.
These tears surprise—
I can’t deny your presence is missed.

I know who I can’t live without;
His name beats its relentless tattoo against my
Bruised & battered heart.

And I know too what I will put myself through;
These are scars that will heal,
Though they may sting from time to time.

He was my hummingbird love,
His wings beating so fast against my face
I could never focus entirely on him.

Out of touch, out of place
Falling through the trapdoors of time.
I need a scenery change—

A way out of this ravine.

The End
