Nowhere

Taking steps one at a time,

Lost in a haze of images–

Too slow to look at,

Too fast to understand,

Backwards in the good times we had,

Fast forward in the non-existent future.

Voices of friends

a blur of background noises–

Too high to like,

Too low to register,

Numb to all pain–

Too numb to be alive,

Too dead to be breathing,

Still existing

In a world without you…

    1. I have had too many nightmares where I was being rejected. It left me in pool of tears every time. Losing someone to death is painful in the extreme, but losing them to life has a recurring sting that people often don’t understand.
