To Have Loved and Lost

Pain so intense, I wish I could stop this insanity
heart pumping blood; so full of life,
yet I’m walking around like a zombie

Twisted, wrung tight, gasping for breath
life being choked out, massive cardiac arrest

Mind, soul and body, weak from despair
drowning in sorrow, trying to come up for air

Love gone wrong; sick, twisted, hurts and emotion
take me out with some lethal potion.
