the sun will rise on my healing heart
a new day will come,
whether I want it to or not
Nights that I wish would last forever
dissipate into bleeding colors of mourn
only etched expressions remain,
for I have been drained of all else
The dawn approaches quickly, and I have not slept.
Solitary in my bed, still
I dreamt that you returned, but I could not
touch you, and you faded away.
I understand it now
how I will miss his touch, his smile
but I do not know what else I’ll miss…
It was lost long before I let it go
