when i thought i lost you

When I thought I  lost you.

The world stopped spinning

And a wave of anguish besieged me

With the full force of a monsoon 


When I thought I lost you

No words escaped me

Only a trail of tears 

that told the tale 

of true tribulation


When I thought I lost you

My body shook

I pled with a god that I mistook

As good


When I thought I lost you

I sang a hymn of pleading

Praying to imaginaries

for healing, peace, or meaning 


When I thought I  lost you

I know I lost myself

'Cause although it's been years

I think of nothing else.
