I was alone,
my heart a desolate island of pain.
Then there was you – your smile, your laughter
filling the void with a glimmer of hope.
For a short time, happiness ruled over despair.
Then you left,
and my soul split in two.
Edging close to the brink of insanity,
I looked down and saw my reflection.
As it stared back at me, I realized that I didn’t need you to make it.
You were a lesson thrown to me by the hands of fate.
So I picked up the pieces of my shattered core,
moving on with a whispered goodbye.
