To Suffocate

If I could turn back the time when clock's stopped
I feel like I'd be able to put the pieces back together like I was on top
To let you go and move on makes it hard to inhale
Like using all your might to grab a hold of something that's gone stale
I will remember your presence it was strong here
You had a way of making things move with only one gear
Like glue on ivory you held things together
You'd be able to light a candle with a wet match you were very clever
Time moves slow now like a ant down a hill
Echoes of laughter now stand still
The beings that use to exist now feel small
The sorrows that ponder carry me down the hall
I wanted to tell you to be strong but I was scared
I wanted to scream at you to fight but I just stared
The words bottled within but they did not fall out of my lips
But they just lay dying like cold fingertips
I was sad and weak and broken
The words died inside of me uttered but not spoken
I always beat myself up over the bruises in life
Just a sad little girl staring at a kitchen knife
I want to be like the person you was a long time ago
Before life took over and became a shit show
But still I push forward and only the lord knows why
And still I sit with the thoughts that eat me alive
Because one day I know I'll surpass the hate that breaks me
Then maybe dear Jesus I'll be free

Love and break up, of course, is an ordinary melancholy theme. What makes it different and extraordinary is your unique poetic talent, Amber. Great poetry!
