“It felt like my soul was being ripped from my body.
It felt like losing you all over again.”
I watched the morning mist wrap around your silhouette like a warm embrace. And then you turned around and smiled at me. Time stood still as I remembered the sound of your voice against my ear, the smell of your skin, that look in your eyes when you spoke. Each memory washed over me in a rush and then I awoke, sweaty with my heart pounding in my chest. It felt like my soul was being ripped from my body. It felt like losing you all over again. And then, I crumpled as my breath hitched into sobs.
