You Are Not Alone

Apollo Reyes
Apollo Reyes

You are not
lying in an empty apartment
halfway around the world
shedding lonely tears
and rifling through the faces
of those who are gone
but not forgotten

You are not

I am there
with you
holding your hand
sharing your tears
singing the song
with you

You are not
sitting, disheveled, on the floor
drinking cheap vodka
and writing vague letters
to the ones you plan
to leave behind

You are not

I am there
with you
holding you tightly
calming your shakes
mouthing the words
with you

You are not
locked in a cell
that you built
from the names
people called you

You are not

I am there
with you
meeting your gaze
matching your smile
dreaming your dreams
with you

You are
everything
you were ever meant
to be
I am with you
and you are not
alone. TC mark
