Love and Grief
(York, North Yorkshire, UK)
She asked nothing of me
But I owe the world to her,
Now I’m left without my friend
I don’t know which way to turn.
My right brain has flooded my left
I can feel it all through my skin
It’s a feeling of lightness and weight -
It has really begun to dig in.
My body shakes with a life of its own
I hold back the tears at the smallest thing,
I don’t understand anything anymore
I just want to scream out -
"It’s not fair".
