Without your Light

Without Your Light

There is only darkness

Deep, dark sorrow

That is never ending

Why all the guilt when it comes to grief?

guilt for not knowing what happened to him,

guilt for not crying enough,

guilt for crying too much,

guilt for thinking only of him since he left and not of myself or others,

guilt if I get distracted and do not think of him for a few seconds,

66 days already...

How can it be that I have not seen or spoke to you in 66 days my love? Everyday I awake with this dark, hollow, emptiness that does not go away. How did I make it through the last two months without you, your love, your touch, your support, your silliness, your kisses, and our happiness? How do I make through today without you?

People keep saying "one day at a time" but I say "one second at a time".

I feel that I am dead inside, but how can I be if I am feeling grief and pain?…
