A Week And A Day - Poem by Meredith Fahey

It's been a week and a day
And I've lived a lifetime since I last saw you
Some days have been empty, some full
But I've lived them all
I thought I was alive in your arms
But I was sleeping, sweetly dreaming
And now that I'm alone, that I'm back in my skin
I know it stretched when you were in it
And I'm having trouble filling it on my own
But I know that I'll find what I need with my eyes open
And not shut tight, hiding under the bed
Fearing the monsters that pray on broken hearts
I don't
I only fear my memories, they lie because they are full of doubts and changing views
Did you ever love me? were you thinking of her while I held on tight to you?
Maybe the reality is that I could never call what we did making love
Because you were never very good at it together
It was simply sex
It's been a week and a day
And I see the world more clearly now
