Harsh Reality... - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

The whole room disappeared
I was left
small and insignificant
staring at the floor of my soul
I couldn't breathe
for in that fraction of a moment
I felt you depart from me
The coldness enveloped my bones
Leaving me stiff and frozen
feeling lost
A wanderer in the desert
of harsh reality
