I feel empty now that you’ve gone,
You gave me purpose,
Your wonderful ability to turn the mundane into magical,
It kept me going,
I brushed my teeth with your lips in mind,
I ate well to catch your eye,
I slept uncomfortably to hold you closer,
I planned my day to see you,
You brought flavour to my palate,
You were my foundation.
I feel lost now that you’ve gone,
You kept me on course,
You righted my ship,
I knew where I was headed with you,
My compass seems broken,
The anticipation of something new excited me,
You were the pillars holding me up.
I feel drained now that you’ve gone,
You took the colours with you,
The world seems dull,
A barren wasteland,
You were so beautiful,
Like a photograph that kept me wanting more,
Like a painting that left me breathless,
Everything pales in comparison.
I feel cold now that you’ve gone,
Everything you touch turns to warmth,
We learnt to play each others songs,
I was your beat,
You were my melody,
Our rhythm was addictive,
A private dance only we knew the steps to,
But it seems the performance is over.
