Poem: Loss

(This can be found in Poem a Day May 2015.  I won’t explain further.  Sorry if you cry over it.)


The likelihood of being known,
For you is not at all.

I wish I could explain my heart,
But it has been too strong.

I fought to live, so you had to die.
I begged, and pleaded; I had to cry.

What more can life do to me?
After all, I can barely breathe.

I shudder to think even after everything,
I just wasn’t good enough.

Even if you gave your life,
I cannot live without your love.

I sit here dead and wish
You weren’t six feet underground.
