May These Feelings be Sempiternal

May These Feelings be Sempiternal

Miscellany Editor

I find myself with inescapable feelings.
The thoughts that provoked me before lay barren,
As thoughts of grief run rampant.

I miss thinking the way I did before,
But things are not the same,
For I am not the same.

I do still dream,
And sometimes of him.
I hug him again and again
And he laughs and laughs.

At times I get bursts of feelings,
Those that came before the loss,
And a sudden guilt rushes over me.
For if I return to my old passions and emotions,
Will his presence and memory leave me permanently?
