(An A to Z Challenge entry)
A valley so deep, digging into earth,
trying to find a single drop of comfort.
My heart feels like an oasis in the desert.
A room so dark, blinding to the eye,
trying to find a single moment of light.
My mind feels like a prisoner in the Box.
A night so cold, freezing to my skin,
trying to find a single breath of warmth.
My body feels like water in the freezer.
But you’re gone.
I long for
One more drop of love,
One more moment to look,
One more breath to embrace.
But you’re gone
I am not ready
to let you go.
