The Loss of You

The Loss of You – Jacqueline Nash

Today, my whole world closed in around me
as the earth stopped turning, stood still.
The sun was switched off, I could no longer see
after being forced to swallow the bitter pill.

In the darkness I clawed, found the nearest womb,
curled into a ball, tried hard to stop thinking,
I turned off my mind, laying in my chosen gloom
awaiting salvation from this terrible awakening.

I wait here in limbo to be delivered, my rebirth,
to try and start my life anew without you.
I have to carry on with my life on this earth,
with my heart in shreds, I must continue.
