But a Nightmare by Gary R. Hess

This love poem was written when I felt so much love for a woman I thought that I couldn't live without her. Of course, I have and that was silly to think. Nonetheless, my love was great and the nightmare of losing her was ever present.

But a Nightmare

Life without you is not life
  but a nightmare.
A nightmare that eats
  my skin little by little.
A nightmare that pricks
  my soul until it feels no more.
Life is not life, without you.
