A/N: I wrote this to explain and give voice to my feelings regarding how I felt when my boyfriend, for lack of a better term, dumped me. I'm very fond of it, though the title is one I got from a friend. Of anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to them. Edit: Name changed; old one was Lost Love, Living Hope. If anyone has a comment on the titles, like which they like better, please tell me; I'm still working with it. Also, the song/poem Standing Alone is a sequel of sorts to this. Anyways... Read. Review. Enjoy.

Without You

Everything was heavenly
Loving you was a dream
Life was perfect with you
So why did you hurt me?
When my love for you was true.

Now I'm lying on the floor
And I'm trying to hold on
Can't stop the shaking,
Can't stop the crying
And it's hard to move on

My life's now torn apart
My heart's being ripped out
And my soul was trampled on
So why did you hurt me?
When my love for you was true.

Now I'm lying on the floor
And I'm trying to hold on
Can't stop the shaking,
Can't stop the crying
And it's hard to move on

You were everything to me
What I always wanted
And all that I need
So why did you hurt me?
When my love for you was true.

Now I'm lying on the floor
And I'm trying to hold on
Can't stop the shaking,
Can't stop the crying
And it's hard to move on

I wish your face wouldn't haunt me
Since memories of you are torture
And I can't stand your face no more.

And I just want to know
If my love for you was true
When I gave everything to you
Then why did you leave me,
So why did you hurt me,
Why did you do that to me?

Now I'm lying on the floor
And I'm trying to hold on
Can't stop the shaking,
Can't stop the crying
But I will move on.

Now I'm getting off the floor
And I'm trying to hold on
I've stopped the shaking
And wiped away the tears
Because I will move on.

And now I don't need you
Or want you anymore
My love for you is dying
And I'm no longer crying

I'm holding on,
I'm moving on,
Without you.
