'Losing You'


Losing you would feel like a blow to my wind pipe….I would be breathless.

I would be in bed all cold and alone….so restless.

Losing you would feel like a stab in the back….I would be paralyzed.

I would feel like a boxer getting K.O…..no longer can I rise.

Losing you would feel like a third degree burn….scarred for life.

I would feel like a brain damage patient….can no longer think right.

Losing you would destroy me like a hurricane….nothing would be left.

I would feel like a husband trying to save his marriage and giving it his best….but his best just isn’t enough.

Losing you wouldn’t just feel like getting stab by a knife….Losing you is like me losing my life.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
