Landlocked

“I’d like to hope for second chances.
Either way, I miss you like a hole in my chest.”

I’d like to hope for second chances. Another chance to reignite what we had. Either way, I miss you like a hole in my chest. It’s hard to describe what this emptiness feels like. It’s as if I’m an uncharted island, surrounded by the ocean that is you. I’m only meant to feel a small part of you at any time. And the rest of the world gets so much more. But I suppose that’s okay. It’s better than being landlocked without ever feeling your touch.

  1. This is very moving to me Sarah. The first few lines brought back memories of my first wife who lost her battle with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis at age 55. It’s hard losing someone you had been with for 38 years. 😢 A beautiful piece my friend 💜.
