All the Questions

How can I miss you?
I never knew you.
How can I feel empty?
You’d barely begun.
How can my life change
When nothing is different?
Except that you were, then you weren’t
Now you’re gone.

How can my tears outweigh
What you had measured?
And also outnumber
The days that you were?
Why do I lie awake
Wishing things different?
When I know this is common
And life isn’t fair.

Why can’t I forget?
With nothing to remember
Just let go of your thought
When that’s all that I’d got?
When will I ‘move on’
And ‘get back to normal’?
And how do I start
Without you, little dot?
