Sitting with lose I love, suddenly you creep into my body, overwhelming feelings of fear, sadness, denial, anger.

Causing me to isolate, desperately looking for answers, ways to cope without showing signs, putting on a happy face when you are present so you don’t worry.

Days go by without an answer, thoughts of running as far as I can just to yell, cry and mend my soul.

Tomorrow I will try again.
