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 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 feelings
That I now know 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 don't thaw

As the venom
Starts flowing
Right through my veins
I scream
And, I choke
As I now lie in pain

I try to get up
Yes, I try to fight
But, it doesn't seem worth it
It just doesn't seem right

So, I kiss you goodbye
And, then I spit in your face!
It is your existance
That I now dream to erase!

Your voice
And, your sorrow
Your anger
And, despair

Your need to keep using
The fact
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 center piece
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.
