Loss

A dead body lying over the floor
The pale colour of death through the shadows of the night
The silence of an ended existence evaporating in the gloomy air
I've lost you forever

All your sweetness got sealed inside a tomb
All your beauty got condemned to be rotten
All your happiness got wasted under the earth
I've lost you forever

My arms outstretched over your carved name
My heart sinking in the memories of you
My soul wandering alone by the graveyard
I've lost you forever

Why have you abandoned me when my life existed through yours?
How shall my lungs work when it was your love I breathed?
How shall my legs walk when it was your hands that guided me?

I've lost myself forever
