Y O U

It’s always you

You’re my alarmclock
If it weren’t for you
I’d never get out of bed

You’re my air
‘Cause I just can’t breathe without you

You’re my hobby
Because spending time with you never bores me

You’re my very own fire extinguisher
‘Cause you’re able to put out all my fires

It’s always been you

But then
One day

Suddenly
My alarm didn’t go off

Suddenly
I wasn’t breathing correctly

Suddenly
My hobby didn’t seem to call me anymore

And my fires became unbearable

I looked at you
And the U was gone
And the Y too

So all that’s left
Was O

And me
Thinking
And wondering
Just wondering
Wondering how I missed it

Woah, this got real deep real fast, and I wasn't expecting that. This is so well done! Way to go! I especially loved the letters in the poem and what they stood for.
