Why can’t I see straight,
Why are all these thoughts swirling inside?

Pushing to get out,
Screaming inside my mind,
But my mouth refuses to open,
Hazy and dazed,
I fooled myself into thinking you’d be there when I came down,
I guess I inhaled on an exhale,
Let it cloud my judgment,
And it left me with a dry mouth and a drier wit,
Enough to combat the damage you left me in,

But it still clouds me,
Still asking for the jokes, the where is he if he’s not with you remarks…
And I still laugh them off,
Like they don’t know I’ve already taken the punch line,
Knee slapping and gut clenching,
I take it all,
Just to hope, to remind myself of when you were still here.
