just another goodbye

This sadness is seizing me, taking over my body. 
I feel it deep within my chest. 
Something is missing there.
You reached in,
twisted,
and took something out that's not supposed to leave. 
My body no longer knows when it's supposed to breathe,
eat,
sleep. 
It doesn't know how to be okay anymore. 
Everything still runs,
but it's slowing,
like a wind up toy losing steam. 
I'm out of energy,
trying to compensate. 
Pretend I know how to feel right again,
even when my body doesn't. 
But you have what makes me tick-
you're holding all of me. 
All of me. 
All of me
is yours.
