without you


i sometimes wish that i’d died with you
God knows, i feel as though i was born with you
together, as kids, we discovered life
each other
passion beyond passion
though you grew into a bad man
a man who held no place in your heart
for me
you were still a kindred, of sorts
a friend
a foe
and i’d give my everything’s everything
to be with you now
because, when i was with you
i knew my station in life
i understood the ins and outs of my own existence
without you, i’m a ship at sea
no guidance
not even from the stars, above
without you there is no anger
no fire in my belly
there is so little of me left
that i feel as though i’m disappearing
with each day that passes
since you’ve gone away
