Pain of loss

The pain is worst at first realization
time lost
it crushes you
drains you
sucking energy
from your mind
It holds you under
can’t come up for air
grip like a vise
vision dark
clouded eyes
you’ll never be the same
the world keeps turning
nothing stops
no one sees
the sun rises
the moon shines
the morning takes a breath and soldiers on --why??
Can’t you see
don’t you know don’t you care
not there for you
its hand touches your insides and you know the same
find comfort in ignorance
hold them near
find the time before the sand runs out
the meaningless and insincere
keep them at arms length
look away
another day maybe --what are we looking for?
Is it that easy
Can it be that hard?
