It starts off in my past, then present. It's kind of talking about I am in love though broken at the same time. There is just a big distance...More like not in our relationship but like literally dude.

I feel the bugs,
Crawling over my skin.
My scream,
Held back in my mouth.
What is this about?

I feel the walls around me,
I can't break through.
What happened?
Something I didn't know.
Where did my dreams go?

I looked at death in the face,
My body stuck in this ugly place.
Trapped in this hell,
I begin to pace.

My blood is frozen,
My smile broken.

Living in agony,
Going to my little world.
Leaving the world behind me.
Searching for what makes me happy.

My coffin,
From within,
Is wide open.
I have found him.

Though it seems,
He's a world away.

I lay there lifeless,
Watching the trees above sway.

I feel incomplete.
Please, I need you here beside me.
I begin to bleed.

Feel the truth in my eyes,

My heart, in your hand,
Is where it lies.

All my dreams fly above,
As I sit here,

Brokenly in love.

I love the emotion you have placed in this poem. It is an amazing piece. It throws all these feelings out. Like how you have become stronger, and fallen out of a dark place into something truly special. Nice job.
Favorite line, "Please, I need you here beside me". Beautiful line that says so many different things. Keep this stuff up. It's good.

Wonderfully expressed. With what has passed in life, I can relate...The ending makes the reader hold their breath for a moment indeed. The last 8 pieces are astounding and can be seen with stark clarity and in slow motion.

Interestingly wrapped work here. Great job. :D
