You were my dreams, my ambitions personified

Breathing was no longer voluntary, but an act of worship

Living was a means to your end

You were my existence personified

 

Hurt, no anger, pain

Definitely not betrayed,

Not quite

Joy?

I dig deep to find a trace

Disappointment?

Perhaps a little

Void of emotions?

God forbid!

 

To lose me to someone else

That’s the ultimate sacrifice

You were me personified
