.. Am still in that dark place, the place I told you about.
The same place I prayed not to go back to, guess it found me this time.
... I still hold you dear to my heart, even with no pillows
I miss that beautiful smile and that crazy laugh of you being uneasy.
I still feel you holding me, and how I wish it wasn't just in my head.
I don't know what to do, really, but I need you..
... It gets so hard sometimes , and I don't think I'll make it this time.
I... I... I feel like giving up at times, because this feels like hell without you here...
.. The world should stop for a few moments to honor you, I'd do if I were it.
.. I still think about you, that's what have been doing all along...
Hey stranger...... Please don't let me go..
.... Hey stranger... I still love you.

This is sad and heartfelt. He allows hinself to keep going back to the dark place even when he understands it has costs him the love of his life.
I am certain she is missing him too, but there is only so much one's heart can handle.
If only he could have said those words to her while she was there with him maybe the dark place would have disappeared.
Knowing he thinks about her, loves her and misses her brings tears to her eyes.
