Memory, vivid Her face seared into your brain Dreams consume your sleep Peace seems so far away
Palpitations Swimming in your chest Clenching at your words Stinging on your wrists
It’s been hours, no months, maybe years How long has it been? Since she told you her fears? Since she cried in your hands? Breathed in her atmosphere?
Guilt, it gnaws at your insides Knowing that maybe she’d still be alive If you read into the signs Deciphered the code Went to her rescue Like every time before
She’s gone And you are Drowning in the nothingness Sinking into the tar In pain but still breathing It’s okay that you’re still grieving
