Her Oath, I'll Keep.

By SirEnders

As I lay here alone and bleeding
My conscious is steadily receding.
Look around and find empty space
I'm a lost in a familiar place.
As My life replays before Me
I've come to peace with what I see.
The amount of awful things I've done
Outweighs the good deeds and fun.
This coldness is overtaking my arms
A lust for this feeling, bitter charms.
The memories flash and remind Me
Of the things I repressed so deeply.
I don't understand why You left Me here
Took Your life under that Moon in fear.
You were afraid to be alone in this world
But I was there, My mind is still swirled.
You left, now I'm here on My own
Oh how You would have grown.
This coldness is overtaking My chest
My Darling, I need You back by My side
By Your rules I still faithfully abide.
I'm waiting until My time to be with You
I'm waiting for Death to run Me through.
You left Me, but You made Me promise to stay
And I've been dying slowly since You've gone away.
I can't really see that well anymore
All Our memories are My own score.
But I'll keep My Promise, I hope You're better
Even though You're gone, I'll leave You a love letter.

    The subject of loss is palpable. It's beautifully crafted, given the AABB rhyme scheme, astoundingly worded; all things about this is fantastic.

    Nicely done and written with much heartfelt devotion at a loss too great for words, almost. Cheers SE! - Dan

    I generally don't care for AABB rhyme schemes but I think this works pretty well.
