Passing your empty house

I see no sign you ever lived there

No memory of the girl I loved left behind

Where did you go?

I lay awake each night

Hoping to feel you crawl into bed next to me


Your breath alone could stop wildfires with its blessing

Your kiss could cure disease


Your laughter is a symphony

Your smile outshines the sun


As majestic as Helen of Troy

As beautiful as Aphrodite


You cause more pain than a holocaust

You hurt me more than any wound


The wounds you've inflicted are still carried

I hate myself nightly.
