I insert my earplugs in efforts to drown out the world, I am now drowning in my own thoughts.
I think of the time the sun shined through the naked sky, no clouds, just blue.
I think of the time the rain fell so hard, like the drops were being shot out of a cannon.
I think of the time I sat on the swing as a child, innocent and naive to the futures purpose.
I think of the time I felt complete, laughing, smiling.
I think of the time they told me I was a pawn in life.
I think of the time I knew they were wrong.
I think of the time I was an impact on this world, not an impact that put a dent on the world but an impact that took the dent out.
I think of the time I sat on the benches by the beach doing my best to see the world spin.
I think of the time you sat in my arms, all complete, the opposite of heartless.
I think of the time we were in love, you comforting me like a sweater in the cold and me completing you like the last piece to a puzzle.
I think of the time I questioned my purpose only to find the answer is inevitable.
I think of the time my destiny was lit, similar to the only star shining in the absent night.
I think of the time I couldn’t sleep, not thoughtful but thoughtfull.
I think of the time I couldn’t get out of bed, thoughtfull and thoughtless playing tug o war.
I think of the time I went wild for your touch, almost losing my mind.
I think of the time I forced myself to get out of my head, taking my earplugs out, and listening to what the world had to say. I can breathe now, I am not drowning anymore.

So many emotions Kevin, much hurt and much recovery ⚘ Know the feeling well…and that final realization that you are finally free of the oxygen-sucking grief that consumes you in loss. Beautifully written x
