Whilst I’ve been in Hell.

Where where you?

Whilst I cried into my pillows like a hungry newborn,

Held my stomach as it bled,

received the awful news,

What held you back?

Don’t tell me traffic or I will laugh,

Where where you?

Whilst I chopped and lifted heavy items to the road side ,

Lifted and carted collected memories to the dump,

Whilst I grieved for our friend alone on park benches,

Where where you?

When I cooked tea for two, but always ate alone,

Whilst I wriggled around in the sheets at noon,

Whilst I waited patiently for your phone call,

Whilst I stood under the bus shelter

Waited for a taxi

Hurried to a lecture

Panicked, self harmed, over indulged, over drank, fell.

Where where you?

Whilst I’ve been in Hell.
