A phantom limb.
Pain in the hole my heart once lived.
A nostalgic ache.
Longing for who I used to be
before you came crashing into my being.
Before your beautiful confusion
destroyed my monotonous contentment.
A playmate for my mind
with an identical soul.
You awakened my weary heart
with no intention of loving back.
Paralyzed by your existence,
I long for life before your impact.
Before your gorgeous wreck morphed me
I wish I remembered what it was like
before the agony of knowing you
and losing you.
Because I’ll never be the same.
