Without You. - Poem by Ashleigh Root

Without you i drown in my own sorrow.
Without you my soul grows deeper of depression.
Without you my heart slowly shrivels up until it is
Nothing but a pile of dust.

Without you my eyes will not close until
i hear the words 'he's coming home'.
Without you my life is nothing but a black hole,
where every single thing is lost.
But the thoughts of you are still corrupting my mind.

Without you i am nobody...
But with you, i am actually somebody.
Without you i can't bear the thoughts that invade my mind;
The thoughts that tell me horrible things.
Things like 'he's never coming home'
And 'he's dead, get over it'.

Without you i am useless.
Without you my life is pointless.
Without you my soul is dark.
Without you my knees tremble.
Without you i have no one to protect me.

I know that you're alright.
I know that you're coming home.
But being without you is making my life
a living nightmare.
