nikki jam.

When you passed,

The cold ran through my heart

It swept through my chest,

Knocking the wind out of me

with agony

It made it’s way to my gut

Where it made itself at home

Digging in and creating its hollow

Gluttonous in my sorrow.

And then I think of you

And the light that you bring

The one that can’t be put out

The one I know still sings.

And an epiphany occurs

That such pure goodness can’t

be conquered

Won’t be extinguished forever ever

And I feel at peace with this

knowingness

And day by day,

That cold pitted ghoul that

leeched my soul

Gets smaller and smaller

Dying by faith and goodness

More dead than you could ever

be

Or ever will
