I cannot thrive without you.
I could not go on living
If you were suddenly gone one day.
You hold me together, upright, sane.
You keep me from falling apart,
From breaking down
When all I want to do is cry.
I weep for a future without you,
For surely you are my life.
Without you, I am nothing.
If you look deep into my eyes,
You can see my soul,
A perfect reflection of you.
If you gaze into my thoughts,
You can see the slideshow,
A whirling kaleidoscope of you.
If you were to leave me.
I would wither and die,
Like a forgotten rose in stale water.
I would be an empty shell, a husk,
Numb and heartless.
I cannot flourish, cannot prosper,
I cannot remain alive without you,
Knowing you’re somewhere out there,
Hating me, not needing me, wanting another.
I will shrivel up, inside a sickly casing,
A corpse, a mockery of who you made me.
I will fade, I will perish,
Wasting away, craving what I cannot have.
Your touch beckoned me,
Coaxed me to bloom for you.
You taught me to open up, to trust,
To love as I have not.
If you take away my life blood,
My only source of energy,
That is cruel and cold.
In your barren shade,
I would surely expire.
