Jigsaw Ashes (repost)

Puzzled, I begin without a reference point to resolve the picture
And what is this conundrum but a portion of a grander scope
When you are the missing part of everything
As I face a world I've never known before
A life without you

Jigsaw circumstances and the pieces I can't put back into place
No way to make sense of lost days
When every day without you feels like a breath I can't catch
Like oxygen, you have been robbed from my lungs
And I'm learning how to breathe this air polluted by your absence

My heart beats but I am seeping from the cracks within
Interrogated daily by every question that demands an answer
And yet the void is speechless
Ashes of the past contained within a sentimental urn
Every touch amounts to skin and as the heartbeat ceases
Memories are what’s left that the incinerator can't burn

Yet still I burn alive, longing for what won't be in this life again
Reduced to ashes, like jigsaw remains in a jigsaw scenario
Looking for miracles
How gone is too far gone to raise the dead?
When in truth this world is a gradual suffocation
And you exist in a place more alive than I've ever been....
