I keep telling everyone that I’m okay
that I’m coping well
that I’m not affected by all of this.
I wasn’t lying.
I was honest when I said I didn’t feel a thing.
But I guess I didn’t notice what I had not been feeling
I didn’t notice what had gone missing.
The will to catch up with my friends
The interest I once had in certain things
The love I once carried with so much pride in my heart.
They were gone
and I couldn’t find them
no matter where I looked.
He had took them all with him.
Leaving me with a little less life
a little less spark
a little less of my self.
A Royal Affair
