Missing Wings (2015) - Poem by M.W. Styner

I'm suffocating without you.
I'm paralyzed and your love is the very nerve that kept me going.
I miss you.
I rather die fighting for you than to watch the regret cover the atmosphere so my compassion will be unnoticed.
My hand is shaking.
My mind has no voice.
When I look in the mirror, my eyes began to go blind and it's hard to see my future without you.
I began to get allergies because I'm losing the sense of smell when your shadow isn't holding me.
This must be how it feels to get shot with a gun because the sound of the bang of my mistakes and the bullet of your pain is sinking in my heart.
When you walked away, I thought about every tear you ever shed and in that one moment I shed all those tears at once.
It hurts to see you fade away. Crushing to finally say goodbye.
Heartbreaking to end our untold love story. By: Milton Styner, Jr

    There's nothing so painful than saying goodbye to a love. I feel this in your poem. Good piece of work. Have a read of my 'Should I Die Tomorrow.' (Report) Reply
