The Missing Puzzle Piece - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

I try to think of
One reason you left me
And, I try to envision,
Why you did reject me

Yet, I cannot seem—
To really place it
Or, maybe I just can't
Really face it

How could I provide you—
With what heroin could?
How could I give to you—
What that drug, it would?

So seductive, so peaceful
Even graceful, when dying
As we'd shoot through the sky
So high we were flying

I think of your smile
I remember those eyes
So Sad
And, so blue
A devil—
In disguise

YOU -were my drug
YOU -were my breath
And now, it is over
And now, I face death

So empty—I am
I feel as if I am dead
I now close my eyes
Because I cannot look ahead

I remember the touch
- The touch of your hand
I remember those emotional waves
Which I now know that I can't stand

And, now part of me just
Wants you to bleed
To scream—and to cry!
To feel, and to need

To know what it feels like
To be abandoned!
For you to do this to me
I could never even
Have Fathomed

Yet, there it is—
The writing's been written
Across the wall
And, I feel like I've been bitten

By something that's powerful
And deadly,
And raw,
Like the bite of a viper,
Yes, I freeze
But, can't thaw!

As the venom starts flowing
Right through my veins
I shriek
And I choke,
As I now lie in pain!

I try to get up—
Yes, I try to fight
But I can't find the value;
It just doesn't seem right

So, I kiss you goodbye!
And then, I spit in your face!
It is your existence that I—
Now dream to erase!

Your voice,
And your sorrow
Your anger,
And despair

Your incessant need to keep using
And the notion—
That you don't even care!

One time we lived
United, as one
But, that time has ended
Yes, we've come undone

And, like a puzzle that's missing
It's centerpiece
I'm left strewn and scattered
Overcome by defeat

Yet, you will be the one
To eventually LOSE
When you are the one
Who again, starts to use

And you'll use 'till it's over
And you're RIPPED
And you're BROKEN
As you sit on the floor
Left rotting, and CHOKING

And, then I will chuckle
Hell—I might even grin!
My life I'll renew
A new life, I will begin
