His Words

Everytime he pushed me
Off the cliffs of sanity
He’d be there to catch me
Before I shattered.

This time
I’m lost in desperation
As stark realisations
Creep out of my esophagus,
They linger in my lungs,
As I feel pressure,
Build in my cheeks,
Behind my eye lids,
Then it burns.

Then I dream
Of that fantasy parallel
Where he would have had an opinion
On the things I’ve written.
What would he have thought
About my progress
As a writer.

We had not personally
Exchanged a word

Still, his words
Live in my own.
