Losing Myself

Losing Myself short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

The pain slowly spreads through my body.
While my mind begs it all to stop
(to stop the pain, to stop the tears…),
My heart refuses to let him go.

The mind screams out: “Let him go! Save yourself!”
But the heart whispers: “I can’t…”

By losing him, it feels like
I’m losing myself.
Day by day,
Piece by piece;
until it’s all gone.

Until I’m gone.
