About the Poem

My poem expresses the pain and heartache of a love lost. The strange feelings that come from loss.. even though we may have felt heartache before nothing prepares us for the real thing. When you don't have control over the situation and you feel lost...and alive. That's what I've tried to describe.

After The Fall

I see you in my sleep
You haunt me like a ghost
I dream of our moment together
and my heart seems to fall
Why doust thou Romeo
cause me such pain?
Or is it my soul
that screams for such tragedy?
I feel strangely numb
and tears blind my eyes
I am a puppet
and I lay there in a coma
With nothing to keep me wake
I feel like walking away,
maybe it'll be easier
But so much of me wants to stay
For me love is an elixir
and you've given me a taste
Then you disappear
from my fairytale
And leave me alone in the closet
I wake up from my coma
Still hearing your soothing voice
Still seeing your handsome face
Still feeling your gentle touch
Although I feel such pain
and I know that I have a long road
to recovery
I feel a sense of peace
through my aching body
