lost without you

I used to follow,
follow the footprints you left behind,
I use to step into them,
my feet sinking into the soft ground,
my eyes never losing sight of you,
always following
you

I used to train my heartbeat to match yours,
my pulse racing faster 
and my heart beating harder,
just to keep up with you

I used to dance,
moving my body to the music you made,
twirling until the night stars would fade
into dawn
dancing 
until I was out of breath
for you

now that you're gone,
I have no rhythm to dance to,
I have no footprints to trace.
and my heart,
I think,
I think my heart
has stopped beating,
altogether.

Because, you see,
I'm lost without you,
and 
I'm running out of time
to find myself again.

Where did you go?
