Yes, it was a nightmare
But I haven'tย 
Left it behind
A few days after
My mom reached the stars
And shone down on me
No more by my side
Yet her presence felt
All through the day
Returning to
A semblance of normality
Somehow able to
Reach across the void
Her absence has left
The dark patch
Over our souls
But pretence
Is something that is
As natural
As forgettance.
And I converse
With my dad
Of trivial things
Like they actually
Matter
And I say,
"Appa, I can still
Hear her
In my headโ€
An alive phantom.
And I sob
Uncontrollablyย 
Waking up
Drenched with salty tears
Detached
From what's real
And what's not.
