I try to steady my breathing
as tears stream down my face and I feel like death is upon me
because my heart has stopped.
I'm just a shell
of the person you once knew
Why? It's because of you
my heart is now dark; I need you here
Not so far away.....
...even though we barely know each other
even though we've never spoken more than five times at least
...or am I wrong?
I've lost count at how many times I've stared at you
and how many times you're caught me and I looked away
It was only close to the end you finally looked at me
but it was too late...you were already far away from me
....I wasn't even there when you left....
My sweet, I didn't even tell you how I felt about you,
how I loved you,
how thoughts of you consumed my days,
how I'd felt when you spoke to me
when you smiled at me....
...and now it's too late...
