uncover your heart wound
barely covered by time
like that
I am swept out to the darkest depths of my grief
tears flow relentlessly
where only days ago I thought they were dried up
Losing you is still the most painful experience I have and I can have it over and over again
I keep taking one breath after another, calming myself to live without you
just as I have for sixteen months
and will for the rest of my life
