When you’re gone

It sits like a stone in my stomach

but what is that searing pain?

My chest so tight.

I struggle to breathe.

My head feels numb.

I can’t see thoughts.

I just feel sensations.

Nauseous. Disorientated. Pained.

An ache which starts in my head,

sits heavily on my lower back,

and reaches my toes.




My insides are pulled out.

Hot tears erupt down my face.

A primal groan emanates from within.

A howl. A scream.

And now here I lie in foetal position.

Like you once did within me.

And I remind myself,

I will hold you again.

But for now,

I am powerless to grief.
