Pitch-dark

My world crumbled when you left.

It suddenly felt cold.

You were the fire that keeps me going.

“One more day”, I said. Stay a little while.

I wished you waited for my hug I’ve been longing to give you.

But you gave up and there is nothing I could possibly do.

The light slowly dimmed on me,

I did not notice walking in darkness.

I kept going and kept stumbling in this pitch-dark world of mine.

Trying to find you. Trying to find a light.

A light from above. Flashing lights in front. A revolving beam in sight. A glow from within.
