So I haven't posted anything in a really long time, and this isn't really what I'm going through right now in life, it just came to me from some feelings that I had during my english class today.
So I hope you like it.

This oxygen that surrounds me
fills my needy lungs
and makes me live again.
It helps me suvive.

While I take in this glorious oxygen,
I'm reminded of the way you
used to fill me with hope.
You helped me survive.

My heart beats a steady rythm,
pumping blood throughout my body.
It beats to keep me alive,
it helps me survive.

While my heart beat for you,
you took the razor from my hand
and consumed me with love.
You helped me survive.

When my lungs stopped breathing,
and my heart stopped beating...
you gave me everything
to help me survive.

As the moon rose for night,
we laid you to rest.
You gave me your everything,
yet I'm left with nothing.

Hey I really felt myself getting absorbed with the emotions within this poem, whether what you're going thru now or not.
I like your style of writing.

The whole poem is really powerful, and I liked all the body-air-blood imagery, it brought it alive, but the best part was definitely the last line, where you broke that repetition and really struck home. You gave the reader everything, and left them with nothing" if I may borrow your own wording. It was fantastic.

thanks so much
i tried to make it somewhat different so that it wouldn't be predictable in the end.
