Heartbroken Soul

“I need you, darling, more than ever before.
And I don’t know how much longer
I can bear the weight of existing without you.”

This heart of mine, darling, has grown weak and weary, spending every beat calling your name into oblivion. A starless sky, mocking my desperation. It’s been far too long since I’ve heard your voice, or tasted your velvet lips. Even the smoke rising from a pyre cannot encompass the way your very scent could set my body at ease and yet, fill it with anticipation all at the same time. I need you, darling, more than ever before. And I don’t know how much longer I can bear the weight of existing without you.

So please, come back to me
in my dreams and put
my heartbroken soul
back together again.
