They say time is supposed to heal you but I ain’t done much healing
Letting you go took so much out of me
Accepting that you are gone still pierces the depths of my being
It’s like a fire that won’t stop. A flame that won’t go out.
I look for you sometimes, stupidly hoping to catch a glimpse of you
I still my everything in me to hear your voice; to hear you laugh
I don’t quite know how to piece my heart back together again
I don’t quite know what to do with the ocean of tears that won’t stop flowing
I don’t quite know how to giggle the same. How to love unreservingly. How to trust the process of life.
Today all the women in me need you
I need you to hold my hand and walk with me, to sit on the side of the road with me
I need you to help me put back together the pieces of my heart
They say time is supposed to heal you but I aint done much healing
I wept for you with tears I didn’t even know I had
I waited for you to come back, to call, to text or better yet, to shout my name from across the road
The crevices of my heart and all the passages of my soul need you today
