Took the life out of me

You've taken the life out of me,

the life. Out. Of me.

Can't breathe in this vacuum

cause you took the life out of me,

the sun out of my eyes, the smile out of the sun rise,

the love for life, the gentleness, the speed of my heart

decelerates because you killed the life in me.

Feel like screaming at you but I've lost my voice,

can't speak anymore, won't speak anymore,

have nothing to say,

you drew the life out of me -

me, the blazing cigarette,

you, the inhaler choking me.

You've take then life out of me,

the life. Out. Of me.

I can't breathe oxygen with darkness in my lungs,

casting shadows in the alley ways

taking the light out of the day

cause you took the life out of me.

Beautifully written poem  I've asked myself how this could have happened, one day I woke and I just couldn't breathe.  Somehow I released total control of my life to my ex.  Hopefully you have distance yourself so that you once again can breathe the beautiful clean fresh air.  Tina
