What I Once Was

What I once was,
I can never be,
Who I am now,
Is a total different being;
What I have lost,
Is lost and cannot be found,
My world has turned upside down.
I must discover a new road-
As I carry this heavy load,
I cannot speak,
My words are weak.
My words lackluster,
I am in solitude.
Solitary confinement,
My body aches.
My heart is broken;
Broken into tiny pieces,
You are gone.
I will never be the same.
