Caught smothering in a mass of grieved confusion.
I blink my eyes and gasp.
Slowing each breath until it’s deep and burning.
Waiting for it to pass.
Soft hands sweep the tears from my cheeks.
I wail in fear with pinkened face.
Reborn to a new life and point of view, different but the same.
What felt like an end has begun again, too soon.
I won’t be made to forget what’s been lost, I refuse.
My love, I will find you.
