    Bereft

    She died in the night, so unworthy of death
    All hope seemed so useless and vile
    For hope let my fragile world be destroyed
    My oaths by such lies were defiled

    My companion was made to be half of me
    We were sealed in both heart and soul
    What is life to one human alone?
    How can one, unpartnered, be whole?

    My soul was torn from me that day
    That half of me lies interred in her grave
    A shattered life I cannot retrieve
    And no mortal hand can save
