Do you ever feel like you lost it?

I had this poem in my head and by the time I wrote it down, it was crap. Part of that inspiration was gone (and, also, since I've been getting older and less emotional my poetry has been worse- even in terms of style!). Ever had that?

The distance between two bodies
fills with past pains
lost possibilities
the sharp ends of what you say
and all I don't
stuck with the dull ache
       of indecision
speak or silence
what do I wish for?
for you to turn around or keep going
without any tears
shed long ago
when I still thought it possible
to make you happy
oh the noise in my head!
then the realization
I lost you
long before you left
