The Part That’s Gone by Priscilla Adesheyoju

What I saw in you was love.
What I gained from you was lost.
How on earth can this be true?
When all I ever wanted is you.
A broken heart; a shattered soul.
I had lost you even before I had you.
When again can my life behold?
With my face bent with permanent fold.
All I wanted was for you to see.
What I had for you from within.
