How do you sleep?

How do you sleep?

A Poem by Radioactive
"

After a bittersweet end to a romance, all I can think about is how you're everywhere.

"
My eyes will never shut,
As long as your memory lingers,
Tears that leave my swollen eyes,
Every one I shed is for you,
My pillow smells the way you did,
For even when my own name slips my mind,
Never will the faintest wisps of cinnamon,
More addictive than anything worldly,
That I remember from you.
I wonder how you sleep,
‘Cause without my heart I never sleep.

Wow. What a sad poem, very well written... but incredibility sad! The absents of love is though and you've really expressed that. And the descriptive pain really had me! Excellent writing!
Favorite lines are:
"My eyes will never shut, As long as your memory lingers"
And
"I wonder how you sleep, 'cause without my heart I never sleep'
AW! Last line especially, that line was the perfect last line! :D
