My Greatest Fear

My greatest fear
is not death
but of a single tear
dripping as I cannot draw breath
It will taste
sour, bitter, rotten.
All those years to waste,
I was - in mere seconds - forgotten.
My greatest fear
is not breathing any more
but - dripping - a single tear
because you said "I don't love you anymore."
