Melanchope

My body feels cold
aching with this pain I can't feel

Regret
Sorrow
Fear

Like I was meant to fly
but I never found my wings
so I fall
with nothing to grab a hold of

You found me when I was so close to just giving up
going to sleep and not being alive anymore
you said you didn't want to loose someone that had such great potential of being a great friend

Here I am years later

A marriage put on ice
two people so desperately close
yet so far away from each other

The fire of belief flickering in a hurricane
that doesn't seem to want to go away

and I'm still struggling to blink the sleep out of my eyes
struggling to breathe
to survive this numbing pain
I don't know where came from

I'm still struggling to find some joy out of a life
where the things that before gave me meaning
now feel insufficient

to answer the question I was asking myself back when I was 17
and you stopped me from letting myself fall into death

"What do I have to live for?"

The wish for love is eternal. Beautifully written, yet the poem holds a lot of sorrow. I like this one a lot.
