In memory of beautiful soul, Heath Ledger

by Alyssa Browning
(Sacramento, Calif.)

The rocks unravelled
The tides went backwards
A travesty of justice
Was allowed to be
A mistake, huge beyond belief
It had to be just that
It could not be
My other part of my soul
Lost and gone
So quickly
IN the grace of a second
It could not be fair
That so beautiful and gentle
A soul
Taken too young, too soon
And I realized too late
As the clouds full of bursting rain
Echoed the tears on my face
And the relentless aching of
Of Love unfulfilled and hugs untaken
In my heathen soul
Just like yours
How could it be I was still here?
Breathe into me
Haunt me
Never leave my side
For you are my soul
And cannot disappear from the maps of my heart
Too soon, so fast
The very breath I take
Every breath I take, solemn and lost
Take me with you,
I prayed
For there is no me without you
No heart beats left
I graced the highways with my footsteps
And cursed the god that would take you instead of me
I danced with a truck
But somehow survived
Rescued by the cruel touch of fate
And I knew not what step to take next
I lay in a hospital bed
And silently whispered my truths
to the universe
No one else knew
The depth of
My sorrows
Without you
Nothing could go on
Grief tenderly and cruelly took hold
Of my heathen soul
Tender in the touch of those who cared
Cruelly by my own self-condemnation
That you left
And I so lost in your beingness
Still here eternally loving you.
Alyssa Browning, Until we meet again RIP
