Laura Nowlin, If He Had Been with Me

I hope, I wake up just fine tomorrow. It’s been a few days already that I find myself walking up feeling exhausted and restless. Plus, this is the second day of my down-the-drain-feelings and I can barely cheer myself up. Whenever I feel like this I always have this urge to just lay down, curl up in bed and let darkness seep through me and cradle me to sleep. It’s the least I could do to ease my mind. 

But even then, my problems still haunt me even in my sleep. That’s why I’m restless and I ask myself, why? Why am I suffering like this? Why can’t I do things properly? Why do I always mess up? Why do I always disappoint myself? And the self loathing starts again, I ask myself over and over again, why can’t I be good enough. What can I do to be better?

My tongue has gotten used to your kisses and there are times when I could still taste you even if you are no longer here. I can’t help but wait for your arrival desperately, counting the seconds, the minutes, the hours that dragged on until I can finally be in your arms again.

I know that…
