It’s Been A Month

It’s been a month today.

It’s been a month 
I find it difficult to turn on the light,

a month I spend my nights 
looking up at the sky 
hoping you’ll make me a sign, 

a month since I entered some kind of fake world,
where all the petals keep on falling, 
where all the flowers are dead, 

a month 
and I don’t know anything anymore. 

It’s been a month.

In loving memory of my late dad
