Jessica, you and I started out as just friends.
Then in time we became a couple.
I could always talk to you about anything.
You would listen and give me comfort.
Then we broke up, made up, and became homie lover friends.
We shared everything, our dreams, our thoughts and our fears.
But then you walked away and now I’m all tears.
You left me alone.
Alma, when you and I reconnected,
I apologized for all the shit I had put you through back when we were together.
You forgave me and said it’s in the past.
In a short time, we became close friends.
You even gave me advice about Jessica.
Told me to give her time,
That she would come back.
You didn’t have to be there for me,
But you stood by me like a true friend.
You were my shoulder to lean on,
And then just like that…
You passed away and left me alone.
Now, I find myself in an emotional state.
Filled with love, anger and hate.
But the dreaded loneliness is powerful.
I don’t have anyone to talk to.
I feel abandoned, forgotten.
My life has spun out of control and why?
How did this happen?
Do I deserve this much pain and sorrow?
Only God knows the answer…
But for now, I’ll deal with being alone.
