It feels hollow
Like a hole in my centre —
The physical feeling of grief.
I don’t have words to explain the sensation of losing someone,
I only have the empty feeling in my gut,
Forcing myself to eat when my body has no interest,
Seeing double… or nothing at all,
And just wanting to sleep it away.
She was here a second ago —
Now she’s gone,
And I don’t know how to feel
Other than physically ill.

*** Just know that she was a very bright light in a very dark world. ***
