Death of a Friend Poem

My boyfriend died in April 2010. Its been a month and a half and I feel depressed every single day. I miss him so much. I lie awake at night and think of all the good times we had together, and the bad. It drives me crazy knowing that I will never see him again or lay next to him. I wrote this poem to express how I feel, as if this is one horrid nightmare that I want to wake up from now!

I Want To Wake Up Now

© Palina
I can't sleep, I want to wake up
Life has become unreal
I forget how to feel
Day after day, going through the motions
Living with the pain
There's a hole in my heart
No spark in my brain
My soul is grey
My thoughts are black
The world is plain
Even the sun can't rid the shadows
The shadows you left, all around my home
Filling up my heart
This is the price I pay since it turned out till death do us part.
