Chloe Writes: "Indigo Sky"

It was laughter that replaced every bit of air in the room, and my cheeks dimpled when I breathed it in
It was 1,000 constellations of stars that spilled over an indigo sky
It was the moment brightening expression of utterly simple antics
But it is you who we cannot lose

Arriving home to see your hand-me-down car in the driveway, your hands waving over your head
The odd shirts you were clad in every day, sold in last years yard sale
Things you made so much worse, and the ones that were so much better
It was the laughter that replaced every bit of air in the room, my cheeks dimpled when I breathed it in

3AM, I think of the things you’ve missed
365 days ago, I may have not thought of you at all
All the hours of talking, lasting long after nightfall
It was 1,000 constellations of stars that spilled over an indigo sky

The whole world seeming depopulated by the disappearance of one person
By the absence of one grinning voice
The way no one always remembers all the little things you did
It was moment brightening expressions of utterly simple antics 

An ocean, ebbing to calm to most overwhelming
Walking on hard flat ground one’s entire life, and suddenly slipping into the steepest hole
Loss, grief, melancholy, woe
But it is you who we cannot lose
