What I Once Was

What I once was
I can never be
Who I am now
Is a total different being;
What I have lost,
Is lost and cannot be found
My world has turned upside down
I must discover a new road
As I carry this heavy load
I cannot speak
My words are weak
My words lackluster
I am in solitude
Solitary confinement
My body aches
My heart is broken
Broken into tiny pieces
You are gone
I will never be the same

ŠAugust 4, 2015 Janet Irene Griffin

Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling into at night. I miss you like hell.  ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay
