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.
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.
