Without You Here

No, I don't hate them.
Men terrify me now.
I never knew the pain
could reach so deep.
Falling too hard,
I fell further again.
From an ecstasy
of love into this
awful horror show.
You said "forever"
as you stole
my love away.
Now I am lost within
an avid emptiness
where I just disappear
...without you here...
