A Paradise Fix

The glare of the sun stuns my eyes,
left with a hangover from last nights cries.
Mornings first breath hits me hard-
struggling to stand, feeling totally off guard.

A life of kissing you and holding you close;
is nothing short of a lethal dose.
If I could drown in a flood of my own tears,
anything to free me from these ghostly fears.

You are my drug, and I need a paradise fix-
without you I begin to trip and wonder; a fatal mix.
It's your love that keeps me breathing and alive,
without you, my heart and soul shall not thrive.

I miss you when I'm screaming your name;
my heart is cold; you iced the flame.
Trapped and dying in this sad fantasy,
just a shell of a woman; exposed for all to see.

Without your love, oxygen alone cannot save me,
you stole my heart from under me; then left the key.
When you disappear, and steal away in the night-
think of me as I slowly begin to fade from sight...
