sometimes the words get stuck in my throat.
how can you go on knowing the person you love is gone?...

The day you died I died along with you.
I keep replaying that day over and over in my head.
Loneliness is a short word for the emptiness in my chest.
I want to go wherever you are.
I just want to be by your side.
Am I asking for too much?...
I don’t cry anymore but I think of you all the time.
Sad and happy memories cross my mind.
The only thing I crave is my death.
I'm not sure if there is another life before this one but if there is
I want to be wherever you are.
And if such a thing doesn’t exist, then it's alright. 
I just don’t want to be in a world without you.
To think that I'm here and you are gone is driving me mad. 
I can't wait for the day of my death,
The day that all these emotions will go away.
I know that I'm running away from the only thing I have left.
The memories.
Darling they hurt, they hurt so much.
It's not that I don’t love you, I just can't go on like this.
We promised to have each other backs and yet you left me behind.
You went on ahead of time.
I know you can't hear me but please forgive this unreasonable heart
I'll keep loving you until the day I die.

Very emotional, brimming over with grief, despair, and most of all, abandonment. To make a promise to be together and then be torn apart -- so very hard to take. Keep writing out the thoughts, the feelings -- you do an excellent job of it.
