loss {a poem of sorts}

it’s fading. i can barely see it anymore.

why is it leaving me?

“come back! please don’t leave!

no!”

what should i do? what can i do?

it’s gone! it’s gone, and now i’m alone.

i’m afraid.

i’m so afraid.

but wait.

what’s this?

oh.

it’s me.

i’m here. i’m not so alone after all.

i have me. me.

i can almost see now. it’s not quite so dark anymore.

what is that feeling?

peace?

i’m not afraid anymore.

no more words. no more lessons. no more pressures.

it’s something else now, but what is it?

ah. love.

life.

maybe i can live it now…

what was once lost, is now freed.

i can finally breathe.
