my eyes are tired 
on the dark side of morning
the room seems to spin
only with colors of you
(such a passionate kaleidoscope)
an ocean of emotion washes over me

once open wounds never really healed
tho' the pain splashed on a page long forgotten
seems almost hallucinatory now
then again you were my drug of choice

but here and now
in the dark side of morning
i still drown in the emotion
the waves attempting to wash away 
what would best be left forgotten
the burning, throbbing pain
of losing you

Oh, that burning, throbbing pain of losing someone. Death is like a houseguest that never leaves, rearranging our lives as we know it. Your poetry has always been an ocean of emotion, for me, Lydi. It's good to know there is one constant that I can rely upon! Happy New Year, and I'm loving the new avatar, girlfriend!

Those clinging memories that flood our senses as we try to sleep. Multiplying every memory and need.
Excellent poem very power packed.

Impetuous pain just won't let go...no matter what side we wake to, the hurt is living without that drug of choice...in literal terms but also figurative terms.
