I stopped the pills

Posted on February 3rd, 2017

I stopped the pills that stole you from my heart
But now this weight in my chest pushes my breath
Out and into a sense of nothingness.
Why did you have to go?
I still need you here with me.
Why can’t I feel you?

I see you laugh, playing life like a song.
Your voice still pushes me down this road
Beyond this sense of meaninglessness.
But why did you have to go?
I still need you here with me.
Why can’t I feel you?

Will the empty be filled?
Will the dark become light?
Will the tears ever slow?
Will the heart become whole?

I let your ashes flow from my hands
into the oceans where we once played.
Now there’s broken space waiting for you today.
But why did you have to go?
I still need you here with me.
Why can’t I feel you?
