via Daily Prompt: Overwhelming

With anguish in his eyes
and a fear-stricken plea in his voice,
He said, “But, you gave this to me!”
She replied,
“You’re that overwhelming video reel
that has reached the end,
but is stuck on repeat.
Everyday, I awake with you on my mind.
Every night, you’re in my thoughts.
I am only left with knots in my stomach,
and I cannot go any further
without a beat in my chest.
I die every single day
only to be resuscitated
when I open my eyes to your absence
and close them to empty arms.
I just want my heart back.
Please mail it to me when you can.”
