About the Poem

This is written directly from one of my many lifetimes. An experience so deeply painful, that it cannot be erased from my memory. Thus, though it is many years over, I decided it was time to share it. (He came back to stay.)

Without You

Without you
I become a two month fetus in a bleeding womb;
A hundred year old gasping her last breath;
An animal tied to the tracks when the trains come.

Without you
I become a newborn child with no breath of life;
A caterpillar being devoured by a crow;
A spilled glass of water on a sheet of ice.

How can I embroider my silver threads
Into the fragile, delicately woven fabric
Of your spirit, so that you truly comprehend
How deeply I love you?

I will always love you, always.
Without you, I fill with terror;
Without you, I fade into night;
Without you, loneliness eats me alive, bite by bite.
