When a person you love dies, inside or out, dont make it match. Close your eyes. Shut it out.

When I close my eyes,


You lie there,

your cheecks sunken in,

pale face,

like a statue.


So I force myself to stare,

I cant blinck,

not one second,

I cant stop fighting,

because when I do,

I know,

I will die,

of the pain,

of seeing you.


I want to see you healthy,


as years ago,

but i see you,

i see you dead,

inside or out,

you had to make it match,

breaking my heart.


Not like a quick break,

a crush and then its broke,

like a painfull chipping away at my heart.

Darkness descending over it as I know you are gone.

I will miss you,

but that doesnt matter.


I cant close my eyes,

because if i do,

the darkness will creep into my heart,

and i will die,

just as you did.
