The heaviness you left

The heaviness you gave

The heaviness that still persists in my heart

The heaviness of you that lives in my memory

The heaviness of your presence as you exist now

The heaviness of lost opportunity

Of a life lost

Sinks me

If only I could shed this burden

If only I could shed you

If only it weren’t for this love

that rests in my heart

This love

that is the constant companion of all this weight

If only this love

would ease the burden

If only it could

But it is love

that makes it all so much heavier

And it is love

that keeps you afloat

as I drown
