There came a point today
when the truth finally hit me.
I'm never going to hear his voice again.
And at that exact moment,
tears I had been refusing to cry
crept down my cheeks in stabbing slow motion,
trailing memories behind them
like raindrops caught in too much sun.

The past always shines so much brighter than the present.  
But I will never see that luminescent smile again.

I will never hear the laugh
that betrayed so many different emotions all at once,
or feel the touch of that warm hand in my own,
letting me know silently but always so comfortingly
that everything is shitty
but this, too, shall pass.

Some day the memories will no longer suffice-
embers slowly going black in the relentless passage of time.

What then?
What happens when I don't recognize you in the pictures anymore,
and the voice I've tried too hard to hold on to is gone?
It's just...too much right now.

I had to hold back tears reading this one.
The emotion, is perfect.
On a personal level, it connected with me as well.
Beautiful language and wording, and structure.

"crept down my cheeks in stabbing slow motion,

I love that.

I also how you don't just have pretty words in here either, we get a piece of how you feel right when you say the word shitty.
It sounds coarse but it works.

I just have to say...
You'll never forget, hun.

I'm here for you. You know that, even if I'm not always on Skype. I'm finding happiness right now, and I wish to pass it onto you. I know it's hard as hell, but we'll make it through.

It will get easier. This is how I felt when my grandpa passed!! I am so happy that you are able to put your feelings into words. Just always know you have a shoulder to cry on. Love you! :hug:

The main reason I favourited this is because it really describes how I feel at the moment. You're one of those people, who really know how to express their feelings through literature. :aww:
Just everything about this piece is perfect. :heart:

You have an uncanny ability to express real emotion and relate to the reader. The hopelessness in this is so real, and I'm sure it strikes a painful chord in a lot of people - you should be very proud of that. Great writing, as usual. I sincerely hope things get better for you.

Oh God, I took this poem in, because it is exactly what I have been going through.

I am beginning to climb back out of it, though, and the tender lines of looking forward to the future have begun to imbue me with life again.

I do so hope things get better for you. :)

I am glad to hear that you are starting to feel better. Things will get better in time, I know. But that doesn't make things right now any easier. Thank you.

Thank you and you're quite welcome.

I know it doesn't make things better... I just keep trying to look up so I can eventually get up. It might start to work, eventually.

Keep writing, please. :)
