Nov 2015
Your gasp for air after shattering leaves me broken
Empathy rushes through my veins and pull on every heart string
The tears escaping your solemn yet fragile eyes pierce my skin
Leaving holes in my chest when I dreamed to hold you tight
Cold shivers ran through my breathless body when hearing your cry
Knowing the distance between souls and vessels left us hopeless
My words held no comfort when shouting them miles from earshot
Cravings of your warmth prodded and tortured my body
Motionless and frustrated
While you lie heart broken and desolate
My arms did not stretch far enough to touch you
My promises did not seep into your body and diffuse your fears
Our outcome was grim and left no pleasure to be saved
You, gasping for air in between lonely sobbing
Me, hopeless and worthless, giving support or comfort needed
Distance means everything in terms of dire needs
