Captured

She came to me like a thief in the night

She captured my heart

My body was hers

Mind , spirit and soul

I prayed for her, I prayed with her

I sang to her , I spoke words to her

She controlled me

My walk, my talk, my indisposition

I loved her with every ounce of my being

I nurtured her

Made room for her

She took over me

All that I did and did not do was now for her well being

Her heart was beating inside of me

Until one day, it was beating no more

Unable to sustain her life inside me

I almost gave mine up to keep her

But she was gone

Just as quietly as she once snuck up upon me

Without a word or a whisper

She faded away into oblivion

But I still felt her in my within

And then I felt her no more

I am filled with the void that she left inside me

Thankful for the life I have despite her demise

Asking questions that have no answers

Reminded that the load was not mine alone to bear

And yet I bore it alone

Till it all came crashing down on me

Drowning in the pools of my own blood

Saved by the very same angels who took her to a better place

And though she is no more

She hath captured me

She is in my head, my heart, my soul

My body bears the scars she left within me

I see her, I hear her, I feel her

I am captured by her
