Turmoil

Take my last breath, if you wish,
leave me lifeless too,
but do not take my love.

You can take away the beauty,
leaving the flowers unadorned
and the laughter
left in tears,
a sudden wave of loneliness
stopped by to talk.

The struggle to keep you
has worn me, I am tired,
my dreams have all died
from unchanging scenes,
my happiness went searching
but only found turmoil.

Any hopes have withered
like the fallen petals,
lying uncared for,
and I cry until my tears
turn to stone.
