Do I Matter?

The loss makes me tremble.
I feel alone.
Weeks upon weeks of
uncontrollable mourning,
and still no control.

I open my eyes,
feel the ache…
The heavenly warm light
irritates my empty heart
and aggravates my dead world.

I long for happiness,
but he’s six feet under,
and she’s in a liquor store.
A father gone,
while a mother drinks away sorrow.
Neither has anything left for me.

Blankly staring at the reflection
in the cracked mirror,
I’m delirious with sadness…
Do I matter?
