Love Poem: Every Single Touch

Every Single Touch

One thing has her frantically pacing 
The thoughts of her lover having a change of heart
Magic trick-like love; 
His feelings for her existence have all but vanished 
Panicked, her heart is torn to shreds 
Time is moving too fast, the room is spinning
Her flower cannot bloom without her sun
Shadows cloud her entire atmosphere 
Tears smack the ground aggressively 
Each one holding an individual message of sentiment 
Pain has sabotaged her short term memory
To her, there is no bright future without the man, 
she depends on for her guided light
