Sooty bitter ashes in my mouth

that is the taste of our love, dead

Another wave of pain hits me

I weep, look at photos of us, weep

hear our songs, weep

Sadness engulfs every pore of me

I am devastated, broken, oblivion

ghosting through life

Imploded heart that bleeds

You don’t care, it feels as if my spirit fled

Storming memories

cascading tears, lost, bereft

I’m going under
