I know that I am not alone;

that there are people who love me.

Still, I feel so lost.

I find it odd that the actions of one

can have affected me so profoundly.

But abandonment hurts.

Indifference hurts.

I feel cold.

I donĚt seem to care about anything.

Each day runs into the next

with a sameness that makes me weary.

In my soul winter has found a home.

Spring seems so very far away.
