Day 26

by markvnathan

My Dearest Xxxxxxxx,

My prayers were answered, I made it through the day. It wasn’t easy, it never is, not without you. It’s hard to understand how I got this far without you and now I can barely get past tomorrow.

I’m afraid to close my eyes, when I do, I see only you. I feed myself with lies, everyday, night after night. It gives me just enough hope to get me through the night, just enough hope to wake for tomorrow.

And as this night comes to a close, it’s merely hours until the sun rises again. With this exhaustion and my thought of you, I can put my head to rest. Hopefully, this won’t last a lifetime, god knows I wouldn’t last.

Yours Always,
