TIME ZONE

TIME ZONE

Grief has its own time zone;
the passage of increments
stretching & shrinking
with the elasticity of loss.
In Grief, a year passes faster
than the length of the kiss
you didn’t know was your last.
But a minute feels long-
like you’re waiting for them
to come back to bed
after you found their side empty
and still a bit warm.
Only, when the sun rises,
the bed has gone cold
and the second hand has returned
to the place where it all began,
but they have not.

I’m really, really concerned about you. 🙁 Kind of wish I had another way of checking on you, to be honest. The last things you wrote here have been pretty suicidal. I hope you’re still here, and I hope you’re ok. <3

If anyone seeing this has a way, please get a hold of Roxy and make sure she’s ok. 🙁

I’m so sorry. I replied to you other note but when I went back to look, it was gone.

I’m still here. I’m not doing great… But still here. I apologize for worrying you. I felt terrible when I saw your note.

Thank you for your kindness to me.
