It’s Here Again

CcCGEFbVAAAX8BO.jpg-largeWrite on this page whenever you miss someone. 

It’s here again.

It’s the day before your death.

Tomorrow, you’ll have been gone for 5 years.

Some days, my brain still tries to

trick me into believing you’re still alive.

It only lasts half a second.

But even a moment of that sweet

delusion is something I cherish.

 

It’s here again.

It’s the day before your death.

My heart is threatening to sprout wings,

burst from my chest, and fly away

in a desperate attempt to find you –

maybe this year I can save you before

it’s too late.

Adrenaline. Heart pumping. Pulse

racing. Head spinning. I’m wracking

my brain for ways to save you.

 

It’s here again – the day before your death.

“Relax” they say “you can’t change this –

There is nothing that can undo the

permanence of death.”

But how can I not try?

5 years ago today, you were still alive.
