The first embrace

Holding tears

Blocking thoughts

Reacting with anger

Avoiding talks

Escaping truth

For months

Finally, all knocked

At her door.

She couldn’t unhear

The words he had just spoken

“We don’t know

How much time I have.”

The first ever embrace

Overflowing emotions

Rushing memories

Never ending arguments

Regular disagreements

Loathing thoughts

Years of blame

No nostalgic moments

Yet reality struck real hard

In spite of everything

She loved him the most

She was his shadow

He, her creator.

    1. It is. I have observed how we don’t really realise people’s worth in our lives until they are really gone, not necessarily dead.
