You are the heat that ate my bones and melted me
You are the brittle shell of frost that would not be
I am the last resort to which you cannot run
I am the first clean breath drawn in by anyone
You were the benediction to my silent prayer
You were the only danger that was never there
I was the grand experiment you would regret
I was the easiest in theory to forget
You are the unreal numbers that express my sum
You are the blinking cursor I can't overcome
I am the broken lie you still can't reconcile
I am the one who loved you fully all the while
You were the reeling dream that dizzied every day
You were the poem made up of words I couldn't say
I was the only one who never doubted fate
I was the only one to realize you too late
You are the first I ever loved and ever lost
I am the price you paid before you knew the cost

A powerful piece Ruth. I wonder did you think about this? It is almost in sonnet form - if you lost one of the quatrains then it would be, sonnet form is powerful for expressing love and the loss of love so I think it would be worthwhile to change it. Also this line:-

You are the unreal numbers that express my sum

Would I think be more powerful if you introduced the mathematical  idea of 'unreal' numbers that are called complex numbers. These are numbers that involve the square root of  ' -1 ' Such numbers are completely unreal since (-1) x (-1) = +1 and there is no way that any real number multipied by itself can give -1. The Square root of -1 is called 'i'. Though it cannot exist it can still be used in mathematical equations and give valid answers as long as at some point you multiply i by i and get -1

EG (x-i)(x+i) = x^2 + ix -ix -1 = x^2 -1 

so the solution to the equation x^2 -1 = 0 is

x = i or x = -i

So you could say:-

You are the complex numbers that express my sum

And have a reference to some  difficult mathematics, and at least those of us who know a bit of higher mathematics would get something extra out of it:-)

Wonderful work and those last two lines bring it all together with a bang, hauntingly good~Graham.
