When someone is,
then suddenly isn’t,
it can feel,
for a long time, as if their going
is a thing you’re making up
- surely it’s not real,
won’t they open the door,
send you a text, give you a call,
or at least make
some difference, however small,
to your day. But no,
their going is not a mistake,
it’s a definite, a certainty, a meant to be.
However much you want to disagree,
you’ll see them no more.
That’s the way it is. But it’s not ok.
