loss II.

grief settled in my bones
when word came that you had gone
but it never said a word
never pushed forth a single salty tear

it lay quiet, unassuming,
growing heavier my heart,
growing heavier my limbs

when all was said and done…
exhaustion.
every movement,
every effort to press forward,
held back by this inexplicable weight

even the most mundane,
now forever burdened
by the reality of what it means
now that you’re gone.

feels like I’m running underwater
can’t seem to gain any ground
it’ll never be the same
now that grief has found a home
