Poem: Going Through The Motions

Guts clench
Heart aches
Eyes water
Cold loneliness fills my soul.
Pain is my constant companion.
I question what a life is worth
That is so lonely;
When all who I love
I must let go of too soon;
When none whom I love
Love me the same.
Yet I am not ready
To give up just yet.
So I wake and I shower
I eat and I drink
I read and I watch
I move my body
I get fresh air.
Going through the motions of life
Though part of me yearns
To cease to be.
Sometimes
All we can is go through the motions
And hope that by so doing
We will start living again.
