What’s Left Of You

This pain continues

I try to put it out of my mind

An absence that can’t be filled

This void will remain desolate

Your memories a grateful burden I carry

I dare not luck back to our time together

I would be stuck reliving our past, never to return to the present

The littlest moments trigger your ghost

Don’t talk about you, as to help me forget

But nothing I do will make me forget

Some days I can’t wait to meet again in the afterlife

Maybe I do something stupid to speed up the process

I was never brave without your

In your absence, I’ve become a coward

Too afraid to say your name

For fear of breaking down

Terrified I won’t be able to get up again

So I’m left with living the rest of my life without you

Surround by a void left by you, and the ghost of you

The only thing to look forward too

That I will die

And when my time comes

I want you to be there to greet me

Then I will be complete

Instead of completely alone

Day #133 SJD
