When She Left - Poem by Alfred Ramos

When she left
She took a huge part of me
Broke me down
Forced me to start over
She showed me I was not invincible
An arrow pierced into my weakness
She split me open
She split me deep
A scar resides in a solitary place
A pain so pure and true
Yet she showed me something rare
Something flowing through my veins
The flow of life keeps giving
Giving face of dreams to come
When she walked past me like a secret
Quietly hugging the shadows we created
The silence overwhelming, crushing
There we lost touch of reality
Didn’t recognize the flaws that dangled in the night
How we endured the pains of the seasons I don’t know
The love drug was an enigma
When she left, she took a weight off my shoulders
A numbness of conscience released
And our deeds spelled out a difference
Where subtraction becomes abstract
When she left
I became a handcuffed stranger to my senses
Love though intriguing
Provides but a kaleidoscope of the real world
When she left she took my utopia
And a door slammed shut
