I still remember you in everything I do
I wore you like a bruise proudly on my forehead, displayed for all to see
I still want to tell you about everything right after it happens.
There is no you but I will not let this kill me
You marked me but I survived, as easy as it would be to give up, to give in to this great sadness
I will not let it take control
I will not let it consume me because I am stronger than that
I was broken, empty, depressed and in despair but now I smile.
You will fade and I will still be here, being me…….SURVIVING.
