Dry autumn leaf isolated on white

I felt death steal my breath

In a wake of your leaving

Sadness came to stay at my side

Its touch was frigid cold

But matter mattered not at all  

I furled like a fallen leaf

Slowly drying inside out

The breeze left me alone somehow

I mattered less to myself

Then my heart fell off track

My eyes became so broken

They remain streaked in red  

I fought to not think of you

But I hurt too bad… not too
