You’re not next to me but you’re with me.
I know that, I swear I do.
It’s a Saturday night isolated but I know I’m not alone. I know I’m loved. Especially by you.
Despite this, I can no longer focus on whatever I put on the TV that I thought would distract me enough. I look down to that grid. I’m scanning the grid knowing you wont be there. My brain and my heart are telling me to stop looking but as if by some phantom habit, my body now moves on it’s own.
This search also turns up nothing.
I don’t feel relieved.
I feel empty,
I feel dark,
I feel uncomfortable.
My eyes close, I reset and open up to find the grid is gone.
I’m pacified for now but I know I have to be stronger next time, I know I can’t go on like this.
I’m praying for strength and most of all I’m praying for faith.
