S.O.U.M. | Shell-Shocked

I felt the shift
Beneath my feet
The day you drew
Your final breath

I felt the numbness
Spread throughout
My shell-shocked form
As grief flowed in

I felt the blurring
Blocking sounds, muting voice
My mind a blank
From missing you

I felt the tilt
Then world came right
And with it came this painful truth
That you are dead, and I am not.
