Their pain is now ours

When you said
But for an un-twist of fate
You suffered a head-on wreck

The pain shot through my gut, immediate
Piercing
Sharper, deeper than I’d remembered
Ever before

It’s different now.
The reflections nightmares can stir, more complex.

They are with us
They are part of us
They are
Of us

No longer do I dread my own life without you
I dread theirs
