Unusual tear tearing down my cheeks
giving my voice that scratchy quality
as I tell you of my love, holding
eachother with weak quaking arms
Bodies not willing to accept their fates
Separate entities from their hearts

Take my heart with you when you go
It needs your company to make it tick
Useless without your adjoining soul
Like that of a fresh corpse, still bloody
As it congeals and hardens in death

I'll giftwrap it in shiny paper
Stamp and address it if you should forget
Be sure to open it right away
Let it feel you close so it may revive
Better that one piece of me should survive
than all of me exist to drearily

My heart without you is impossible
like a sky without sun or wet and no dry
Like a silken pillowcase void of the pillow
or a door with no handle and I
locked inside with you on the outside
and I'm pounding to get out and reach you

------------------
Love always and blessed be my children

This is seriously lovely. I like the way you have created your images, particularly the pillowcase!
