Learning to Exist

By- Traci Taylor
September 2016

As eyelids wince slowly open
to the first dawn of emptiness

Roaming the earth in slow motion
existing without your presence
is an unbearable, unfathomable thought

To look out upon the horizon
and see the ocean go calm

To stare blankly into the crowd
and question how strangers
can keep living contently

The dots will just not connect
the picture looks intoxicated

Not being able to feel your spirit
has been more sobering than
losing you from the same world
I continue to exist in.
