Since I saw you

You held me
Stopped my crying
Softened my fears
Kept me near your heart
I can't forget your face
Or forget your arms
And then
You didn't even know
I existed
In your mind
I was erased
As if I were
Without any writing
Or pencils
Just by your hand
When you called
I was in a place
That I could not escape
So please forgive me
For not responding
Until now
My heart missed
So many beats
My heart had been failing
Since you were gone
For so very long

It hurts even to live
Just to draw breath
And now the days pass
Like sand through your fingers
Dirtying hands
Nothing matters
Since you've left
