the years have flown by
life’s kite tail bobbing and weaving higher beyond reach.
i wish you were here
Oh how i wish
that your feet rested on my legs curling and twisting
or your hand lightly touched mine.
people said the pain would fade
black ink to but shadowy greys.
When I think of you those clouds return and my breath drags
and my heart rages and races
but only in its emptiness.
I cannot love you forever like this.
Tears match the drowning rain
Air aches and pulls my lungs as heavy-handed gusts ratter shutters.
I have done nothing since you left me
I have felt nothing
I have been waiting
I close my eyes
and open them.
My focus is gone, water means all I see is glowing smudgy light
But i know you are not here.
You were a friend to me
And now we are broken.
