You were water to my unquenched thirst,
Euphoric fire to my dark soul,
Air to my dead breaths,
Earth to my feelings yet to be grown.

You were food to my hungry stomach,
Running blood to my beating heart,
Unpolluted oxygen to my breathing lungs,
Relishing thoughts to my processing brain.

But look at you now,
You ‘were’ all those life giving things,
You are not anymore.
