I couldn’t even sleep that night
after days of tossing and turning,
hours spent fighting off fatigue
with choking on tears and dry heaves;
it was almost too easy, almost surreal
that just as flippantly as you had left,
you were back to us – back to home.
I dared not close my eyes for fear
of the devastating cruelty of a dream,
a false depiction of the unattainable.
