Have I been living in denial

Willing you to come back to me ?

When all the signs and all the portents

Tell me that’s an impossible dream ?

Moving on has never been my thing,

I like to wallow

In days past

Soaking up in

Misery and tears.

At every sunrise

I raise my eyes

With renewed hope

Of your return.

As the sun sets

I rest my head

On my tear soaked pillow

For another long night.

  1. This is both heart-wrenching and beautiful! ❀️ I have had my share of pain and denial in the past so I can relate to this feeling.

  2. The hope that all of us need to continue, day after day, can also turn against us in these situations. I wish I had advice to give in how to unstick from that siren’s call 😦
