Breathe Again.

Sitting alone in this room.
It feels like a stranger to her now.
Her bags are packed, and the taxi waits outside.
But she's still wishing this wasn't real.

She prepares to leave her life behind.
And say goodbye to you for good.
Trying to breathe, but air eludes her.
She wonders if she'll ever breathe again.

Today seems like a good day to die.
Cold and alone, that box is already ticked.
What's the point in living now?
She's just a sad, empty shell.

The one unbreakable piece of her life.
Is shattered, torn and ripped apart.
These scars she knows will last forever.
And she envisions no end to the pain in her heart.

All her hopes and dreams are dust.
All because of your drunken lust.
She doesn't want to give you that power.
So without you here, she mourns for her future.

The wedding she'd planned, the children she'd named.
Dead before their turn ever came.
The sun outside's a lie. It should be rain.
But her tears fill that void, in rivers down her face.

Turning her back on her life with you.
Into a future, dark and unknown.
Nothing but fear covers her path.
Will she ever smile again?

Laugh Again?
Hope Again?
Love Again?
Will she ever Breathe Again?

Tough to go tougher to stay by the sound of it. Life is never easy is it?

I'm in love with the intensity of this poem. I feel so able to realte to it, it makes me tear up.

I love these lines, very moving.

The sun outside's a lie. It should be rain.

But her tears fill that void, in rivers down her face.

Great Write!

Change is never easy, as with a divorce or death, and even leaving home for the first time. :( Could feel the pain, and empathize. Good poem. :D

Voted up, awesome, and interesting- Because, honestly, I can't think of many things more beautiful or interesting than a story told through poetry. While most poetry does tell a story, this is something entirely different... Different, and amazing. I love your writing style.
