#JusJoJan 6/17 – Tangible

I wish I could touch you
again
I would die to be with you
to the end.

It’s like you’re a spirit
now
Living inside me, in my memory
you are.

It kills me to see you
with her
When you were born for me
you know.

I just want to touch you
once more
’til I do, I will live
to hope.

If I can’t have you, I can at least dream you are here.
The day you died I thought I would expire with grief.
These four walls seem to mock me – outside is inches away, but here I stay.
Holding your lifeless body, trapped somehow in those moments when your eyes gazed back…
If I ever escape, I will find you and hold you and never let you go.
…there I remain. Except when I sleep, I dream you are here, my love.
My love. Until we meet again.
