I booted up my computer this morning opened up the usual sites checked my messages read the updates made a few comments and cried There was nowhere else to look no sign of you anywhere Helpless in my grief aimlessly searching nothing to find but tears I read your words and cried. Not knowing what’s in your heart and trying to understand what you need what you really want. The silence shouts You said to me “Don’t take it so hard” I should have countered “Are you insane?.. Should an ant stomped on by your foot not take it so hard?” Insights come and go Not strong enough to stand on their own Not reinforced Never refuted Left to wither It cuts too deeply to leave things as they are But what alternative exists in this world? Remains viable in the face of emptiness?
