Love Departed

Drawing myself upright
Another night lost sleep
Body defies my wishes
Another fleshy heap

Cold and empty sheets
Bed covering once ours
Constant reminders daily
Dismal emotional scars

Reasons demand you leave
For those I shall remain
Urges to embrace you
Slowly drive me insane

Flowing steady downward
Tears do not fade away
Knowing I must arise
Regretting another day

Sensing you’re still near
Inhabiting a different plane
Longing for your kisses
Feel your breath again

Yearning for the moment
To finish this human form
Feel your essence near
Endure lonely no more
