life without you

your memory lived inside me tonight
triggered by the unexpected
and in an instant
the wave of emotion formed
a big swell
that landed on the corner of my eyes

the water burst
through my lids
like a dam,
holding back the pain
which has been collecting for so long

it will form once again
only to repeat this numbing process
of remembering the night
when your second life began
and I,
was to continue my first
