I Had Lost Me Too

Five years

and 17 weeks ago,

when I collapsed to the ground,

chest slamming the tiled floor

feeling nothing

but the pain of my heart breaking,

all air escaping from my lungs

in a screaming cry,

when I swore my ribs

no longer had anything internal

to protect,

when I was underweight

and overwhelmed,

unsure of if I’d survive the worst news

ever delivered to me,

I had lost you

unable to say goodbye,

and I swore

in that moment

I had lost me too

-POE(MS)
