Now I Crawl


When I lost you, a part of me died.
Now I crawl.
It felt like an amputation.
I’ve yet to regain even half the person I was before.
I can’t master the simplest of tasks.
I’m still taking inventory, but I lost much.
The prosthetics hurt and I can’t walk.
Now I crawl.
I soared when I was with you.
I can’t write.
I’m unable to understand the simplest of instructions.
I feel almost a mute.
I’m trapped inside my head.
The rest of me is numb.
Now I crawl.
My heart rarely thumps.
I ache to feel your powerful emotions.
I’m cold, dead, and disoriented.
I’m disconnected from life.
When I lost you, a part of me died.
Now I crawl.
