Her words are like tattoos.
Burned deep into my skin like a blackened scar.
Her voice echoes in my head.
Like a song where I know the music but not the lyrics.
Her face is like a fleeting memory.
The more I think back, the more blurred it becomes.
Her eyes, lost sapphires.
Her smile, pearls tossed back into the ocean.
A hole within my heart.
Unable to be filled again.
A candle extinguished.
A star no longer shining.
She is nothing but shadow where a person once stood.
A snowfall that is now trampled mud.
A beacon of happiness that is no longer around.
I call out to her but my words fall on deaf ears.
She is gone and she has taken my heart with her.
