Adrift

Be positive – they say.

That’s easy – I say.

But oh, I was wrong – so wrong.

I cannot do this. I can’t.

I lost. And I’m lost.

I cried. And I cried. Again. And again.

I was hurt. I was sad. I was miserable.

Then I envy. And then I jealous.

Those were my feelings. My emotions.

I knew.

It was hiding – cause I’m hiding it.

I’m not overcoming – I’m escaping.

It’s hurting me. I’m hurting.. me.

What should I do?

Should I accept? Should I embrace?

And then move forward..?

  1. Whatever else,
    you were touchable…

    like those words that shine when you see them
    and
    feel soft and fluffy to the touch,

    stinging just a little with benevolent electricity
    as we caress the page.

    You were alive, here on the screen.

    Some of us would weep an ocean for that.
