Disparity

Random times it’s like losing you

From the very beginning- again

The pit in my stomach widens

And life just suddenly falls in it

Even time itself seems impacted  

My breath goes shallow, shortened

Ignorant denial wants to deceive me

Days remain dimmer and hollow

My heart clings to cherished memories

Created in real-time and laughter’s  

Whispers of one-sided conversations

Are now some of my better moments                       

Though they’re oft spoken with tears

They’ll never compare…to authenticity
