The End #poetry


The End

I sit here, weak and dreary
My eyes swollen, dark and teary
Each breath I take, tight and shaky
The wind feels like sand, coarse and breaking
Did you know I would feel like this?
It’s like the earth moved and I didn’t
Yet, I’m spinning out of control
With a life that doesn’t have you in it.
The sun no long wakens me early in the morning
The sounds of your voice no longer cradles me
That should’ve been my first warning
Darkness rocks me to sleep now, its cold breath chills my bones
I wear loneliness like a blanket, oh, how I wish I would’ve known
You’ll be fine, they say, the pain will fade with time
But this isn’t their ache, their sorrow has never fallen in this line
I pray the end is near, for another day will surely kill me
But I’ve been told the agony never fades
Only ebbs and flows like the sea
I must conclude the rest of my life will be no more
Than the replay of love and joy that, together, we shored
