Letting go

I spent the hours before dawn
It's impossible to sleep anymore
My dawning hours spent
Restful by your side
Watching you sleep with a gaze
That rivaled any cheesy romance
Now I lie awake
Restless fingers moving
To the beat of a
Racing mind
But empty heart

I'm learning to let you go
Even before you leave
Fighting in a war that rages around me
Like a ghost
My weapons fall unmanned
My cries tumbling into the void
That is you
The war rages around me
And I
Am its first and only casualty
But you will not save me
Nor let me die in peace
