Thank you very much per my portrait
How Did It Come to ThisI see you and my heart skips -analillithbar
Hear your voice and my breath halts -
Catch your eyes (that big bang gleam)...
And the whole world stops.
Without you all the world turns grey -
Everyone seems dead and cold -
I become numb and wordless
I am a poet without a pen or vocabulary
A musician with no instrument or inspiration
Birds don’t sing; the plants won’t grow -
Without “You” everything is worthless
Why am I even here?
Merely taking up breath and space -
Tomorrow isn’t worth facing
If there is no hope of you being in it
Even if I die alone
(as so many have voiced in hope)
I’d do so gladly
As long as your face is the last I see.
