Surprises

Surprises are not always good things.

Sometimes they are emotional earthquake’s

leaving raw gaping wreckage in their wake.

Complete and utter upheaval

is all you can see across the horizon.

Your normal has now been irreconcilably ripped apart,

leaving you with torn fragments of what once was.

Oh life, why do you try to destroy all that I have?

How do I make sense of things again?

How do I go on existing

when everything is so different now.

How do I go on without you?…
