When I think I’ve Lost You

When I think I’ve lost you

I’m a frantic cliff climber

trying to grab hold of any semblance

of solid ground

or anchoring post,

in returning to (or near) the summit.

When I think I’ve lost you

I’m a desperate version of myself

grappling for sanity

praying for clarity,

seeking relief

craving resolution.

When I think I’ve lost you

I poll the sources

I retreat inside

in search of answers,

in search of hope.

Faltering in my vulnerability

facing regrets and misunderstandings,

gingerly, I collect the pieces and

attempt to revisit

sometimes recreate

what we had,

when I think I’ve lost you.
