If I Thought The World Had Ended I Was Wrong…

Y'all Write writing contest submission. A poem based on the prompt "If I Thought The World Had Ended I Was Wrong…"

Chapter 1

It’s been forty-eight hours since the world ended

Forty-eight hours since I received the call

She’s gone

She’s gone

She’s gone

The repetition doesn’t make the words sit any better

Water strikes my face like shards of glass

My tears are indistinguishable in the shower

A black dress appears on my bed

Likely left there by another sympathetic face

I look in the mirror and see the shell of a once happy girl

The music starts and she comes in

The life drained from her eyes

This new view of her gradually making my memory rot

I stand in the cold and see a kind face

He offers me his hand and a ride

I take it

I see him again

He’s here to help

He talks

I listen

I talk

He listens

I see him again

He takes me away from this place

I talk

He listens

He talks

I listen

I spend all my time with him

We reminisce in the happy memories and cry about the bad

He understands me and knew her

He knows me

It’s been thousands of hours since she was taken from us

Thousands of hours to find myself and to find her

I lay on the top of his car and look at the clouds

The seagulls and waves are barely heard over the music playing

Her favorite song

He makes his way up and lies next to me

He grasps my hand in his and I feel safe

She is still with me in my heart

And so is he

I flash a bright genuine smile at him

He lets go of my hand and brings me into a tight hug

If I thought the world had ended, I was wrong

It is just beginning
