Who am I?

Who am I?

A Poem by Sunshadow Coyote

It's been years in the making
In my skin I am shaking from the cold
I am tired from the taking
And my heart it won't stop breaking and I know... 
Moving forward can't be this hard

I'm just trying to find out
Who I am on my own
I had you right beside me
But now you're gone and I know
That when the room clears I'm still here
Who am I when I'm alone?

They say time is a healer
But it's more like a concealer for a scar
Because it never really leaves us
But it can always find us where we are, we are
Who thought it could ever be so hard?
There's so much I should have said when time was wearing thin
You're not here but someday I know I'll see you again 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/n/nevertheless/when_im_alone.html ]
I'm just trying to find out
Who I am on my own
I had you right beside me
But now you're gone and I know
That when the room clears I'm still here
Who am I when I'm alone?

Sounds like a song...but then again you did say you do it in song form.
Anyway, great use of the first person, you really allowed the reader to put themselves in your position and feel what your feeling cuz you described it so well.
Great sense of loss over this poem, nicely written, quite the spur of the moment and if it wasn't then you've got some crazy skill...that you might have anyway and it could've just been boosted by recent events. Either way, I hope you find all the resolve you need.
"They say time is a healer
But it's more like a concealer for a scar"
