My mind floats these days
Adrift in a haze
Of Fog, unconcerned
That I have unlearned
All I ever knew.
Still, still I miss you
In spite of your rejection,
My dejection.
You lit my days, we were one.
You were alone
On the downward run -
You wouldn't let me in.
My feet never felt the slope
Till too late and our rope
Of love had snapped.
I relapsed
And never woke.  Your weight
Severed us, disgraced
You left me loose, too free
To choose my own fate, to be
Myself for the first time.  A fair trade
You'd think - I should be glad -
But I pine 
For all I never had
For all you never gave.
