In that realm between dreamland and reality

Your face hovers and lingers;


You are the first thought that greet me as I open my eyes

To a brand new day, one where I get to live without you;


You stick to my side all day, closer than my shadow

More intimate than my beating heart;


You are present in every cell,

And color every thought;


I pine for you all day, but you never really leave

And at night, I long for you;


You have become a part of me,

Living and breathing in me;


Everyone else is excluded,

It is you and I that defines ‘Us’;


But we don’t exist, not in the sense of the word,

And yet none else can become ‘Us’;


You came and filled me up

Made me whole;


And branded me,

Made me yours forever;


I belong to you

And no one else;


You left and I am undone,

I am good for no one;


So, I live every day without you,

But carry you with me;


You are the ghost

Of my dead heart.

        1. topazo says:

          1. amity4 says:

            Plain truth Doc. We speak same language.

            1. topazo says:

              really? I am not an alien o…lol

              1. amity4 says:

                Never said you are.
                That we speak same language does not translate to us being same.
                Language can be learned.

                  I am so loving your wits Amity….

    Thanks for this. I know exactly how it feels as I’m going through this right now. The quote that comes to mind is by Sylvia Plath “I must get my soul back from you, I’m killing my flesh without it.”

    1. topazo says:

      Thanks Leah for sharing.
      It is not a pretty place to be at all…I hope you get your soul back real soon!

    Doc, this masterpiece of a composition’s entrapping, enthralling, engaging, enrapturing, enchanting, enriching, ensnaring, enamoring,endearing, and yet pretty entangling and mighty enraging cause none deserves to be in this kinda situation but it does make for beautiful poetry and I totally ADORE it, am totally charmed by it, yes I am and you can shoot me on that basis, I come off totally unhinged! *eyelashes* LMAO!

    Love the choice of title, its pretty and ‘ghouly’! And those lines?! How on Earth did you conceive those?! So surreal, ethereal! Too real! Very creepy! What more can I say Doc?! Wow perhaps?! What in the heck?! Plenty Wowzers it is and you Sir; are PHENOMENAL! For always! My word! Oh Mehn, I’d be sooo damned! ROTFLMAO!

    “more intimate than my beating heart” (could one get closer than that?) sadly matched against “ghost of my dead heart”:

    Very effective, Topazo. I’m sorry for your pain.

    1. topazo says:

      Thanks OB…
      I will convey your condolences to the narrator…

      1. Outlier Babe says:

        LOL–do I get to use the excuse that prior comments of others misled me? (Please?)
