Day 11 - weightless

by Karen Michelle

There's a hole in my heart.
A big gaping chasm,
I don't know how to fill.
And I don't know how to
tell the world, I still
cry myself to sleep

I feel like I'm
losing all the good.
It's slipping through my fingers
and one day there'll be
nothing left but


Even the living
fade away, move on
to shinier objects.
My phone stays silent -
a modern day tragedy
and tale of loss.

And all the things
I held as truth, seem
distant memories
and fairytales.

I am just
stranded somewhere
in the ether
far from
