Without You

One day I will not think of you anymore

When the moon’s light shining brightly

Against the dark canopy of the nigh sky

Reminds me of the night it all changed

When I laid in your arms

My head resting gently on your chest

The sound of your steady heart beating to mine

When the lies caught up to us

Demanding distance between our aching hearts

Back when I was so in love with the idea of who you saw me to be

And you were clinging to ‘love’

Constantly trying to fix me

I clung to the love I thought I needed

But now I know it was not love

Because as the light of the moon shines on me now

It only illuminates the truth:

I am stronger without you.

I am a New Jersey based poet who aspires to share my story through poetry and prose focused on faith and my journey with depression. I have overcome many obstacles and I believe everyone has a story to tell, even if they haven't found the words yet. I hope my words can inspire others to believe in their purpose and to find strength to climb the next mountain.
