It’s not just the loss of what you once had,

That can eat your insides

And drive you mad.

It’s also the loss of all those hopes

For which you had once yearned

And that no longer dangle

As possibilities up ahead

That can mix you up

And twist around your head.

I try to envision a new future-

One without most of the past hopes I had held-

But all I still see is a blank horizon,

Lacking your star, our constellation,

Our old dreams.

I now see emptiness instead.
