Title:  Broken String

I never knew,
that loosing someone,
would be this

I barely knew you,
but the pain
still fed deep
inside me.

Crawled up my veins
and got through my

I maybe did something
I wasn’t grateful enough
for you.

Yet at that moment
that’s what I felt
to have had you
by my side.

to have had you
as my best friend.

I did nothing
wrong, yet even
though my heart
aches with pain

My mind tells me
that you, were
the one not
grateful to have me.

To have a shoulder
to lean on,
and someone to ease
you of your pain.

Yet we were both
pulling on one string,
blindfolded thinking
it would never break.
