How It Feels

I just wrote this on my tumblr…but I guess I’ll post it here too. And yes, this is my second post today. But it’s been a crappy day and I needed to write something.

How It Feels

You got the news today
but you didn’t tell me right away,
and that’s okay.

But it brought back some memories
that I would rather leave
buried with her.

And now my heart is breaking
and it just keeps aching.

And now my tears are falling
but I can’t keep stalling.

It’s just I never wanted
you to go through what
I went through.

I never wanted you to be
haunted in your dreams
with images that can’t
be unseen or drowned
in lyrics or love or time.

This journey is a long
hard walk
and I don’t want you
to walk it with me.

Even in my loneliest night,
I never wanted you to
know what this felt like.
