Everything Passed in a Blur

Coldness enveloped me that day, like a crusting of ice had formed over my soul.

Everything passed in a blur

I could feel it, the constant stabbing pain and bile rising up in the back of my throat as they spoke.

Everything passed in a blur

Days fade to weeks, weeks to months as the dead eyes of the girl in the mirror looked back at me.

Everything passed in a blur

I was sick, hollow to the point that something else had taken refuge inside of me..

Everything passed in a blur I choked down the pills and gulped down the water it was metallic like blood.

Everything passed in a blur

I found what was left not really all there eyes closed instead of in that questioning stare.

Everything passed in a blur

I promised the next time we meet that we would linger together, for why rush when we have forever. Everything will NOT pass in a blur

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
