Sleepless nights

Before my eyes know rest
They fill my pillow with stains
Of salty worry
I try to remember
When days were brighter
And my world was a little lighter
But I can only recall the misery
Sleepless nights are all I know
Sadness mixed with melancholy
And situations beyond my control

I still hear you whisper
Promises of tomorrow
Never leaving my side
But only adding to my sorrow
Where did those yesterdays go
Still locked in my mind next
To forever
My heart can't fathom
What reality is trying to
Get my mind to see
Gone with you are scattered
Pieces of what was once me

No food can replace
The taste of your honey
Coated kisses,how your dreads flowed
Down your chocolate body so delicious
It gave my belly fullness and satisfaction
I hunger to be fed by you

I'd rather stand in the busiest street
Than live without the smile
That used to greet me
Did you think of what you
Left behind to be a catastrophe
Or was it merely easy
To take away the life
Of a woman who could one day
Be your wife
