broken bowl

like a fish with a broken bowl
i can't breathe without you
like a soldier with no legs
i can't walk without you
like a blind beggar alone in the dark
i can't see without you
the world no longer turns
without you
it lingers and it festers and
it slowly fades
a faint pulse left behind
when they're giving up resuscitation
and the moon pulls the tides over us all
and all is still
all is quiet
without you
