The pain is deep and hot,
piercing my lungs as I try to breathe.
I try and speak,
but no words will come.
Just tears falling on my cheeks.

I try and move ,
but I am frozen.
This is it my heart screams,
my life is over.

My eyes watch as the stars
fall from the sky.
I see the sunshine fade,
and the moon turn black.

I try and see the colors in a rainbow,
but they are all gone.
All the colors have disappered.

I try to hear,
but all is silence,
not one sound.

I try and feel,
but all is hopless,
all that is left is a deep empty void.

Then the feeling comes strong,
pain, such blinding hot pain.
For I relaize....
that you my only love,
is now gone.

Such pain you write of, Betty.
Beautifully sad, this void.

Breathe... all I can say right now is thank you and share a "HUG". It still hurts, you know.

Betty the truth about this poem is that our emotions can be more painful than physical pain, and really become physical pain. Very powerful poetry.
