Like He Died



He was taken away
And put somewhere else,
Completely out of our sight,
Without our consent
Or even a goodbye.
Now I see you
Laughing,
Just chilling,
Like nothing ever happened.
Like he wasn’t ever snatched away,
Like he’s not gone,
Like life is as normal as ever.
Let me tell you it’s not anymore
So stop pretending,
And so stop acting
Like everything’s okay,
Because you know it’s not.
You know it as well as I do.
I walk past his room,
The door's open.
The room smells of his cologne.
The room is as dark as night.
I feel shivers crawl down my spine when I walk by
And I feel tears threatening to appear.
I'm feeling his loss
As if I had truly lost him forever,
As if he truly had died.
