Alone

I feel lost
Alone and empty
The pain of the loss is too great some days
I don’t know how to breathe
Forcing myself to make it from one moment to another
I reach for you and imagine you are here
That I can hear your voice whispering in my ear
I imagine your arms around me as you sing me to sleep
And I hurt that much more
Knowing what can never be
The loss is too great to bear
And I often crumble beneath it
I pretend to be strong
Yet I feel like I’m dying inside
The void grows within me
Taking more of me as it does
What will be left of the girl you once knew
The woman you claimed to have loved
Was it all a lie
It must have been
Because you are still not here to hold me when I cry
