So many expect me to handle this so well

I don't know why & I don't know how

Not even breathing has been easy

Not now that it's you I've lost

-

So many have gone on as though nothing happened

They expect I can do the same

But that's not me

And I don't think it ever could be

-

Surrounded by those telling me you're gone

Reminding me of how in the most graphic detail

Even when they know

There are words I can't handle

-

So many have gone on as though nothing happened

They expect I can do the same

But that's not me

And I don't think it ever could be

-

You did what you did

But I don't have it in me to blame you

I miss you & I need you

Even though it's you I've lost
