Since the day you shattered my soul
The shell of my body sits
Hunched over in the pouring rain 
On a rusty bus stop bench seat;
And I give away the pieces 
To every person I meet,
Watch the shards glisten 
As they disappear in front of me,
And listen to the rain drop 
As I wait anxiously
In desperate anticipation of the day 
That there is nothing left
And I may finally depart gracefully.

Your desperation is an echo of my own. I too find myself feeling more and more like this nowadays. Loss, heartbreak, loneliness - they can become all-consuming. Hopefully you'll keep writing, and in that writing stave off some of the bleakness, if only for a while. And keep posting here as well, because you might find that it's surprising how these remote, digital connections we make can remind us that we're not alone, that others feel as we do.
