without you

what is love without you? like a
lamp with no flame, a house with
no roof, a story with no theme. what
else can be more important without
you? i gather these doubts, these
thoughts that haunt me on my
sleepless nights. i cannot jump in the
river. i cannot sail on the ocean. i
cannot write more love songs. all
these things i can’t do since you have
left and gone. now, i can’t live happier
without you.
