With Out Her poetry by Ashley Pentycofe

I dedicate this to my Grandmother who I recently lost

With Out Her

I am a fish out of water

Flailing about

Struggling to breath

Each move costs me a part of you

I am a skittish cat

Overwhelmed and hiding

I shake with fear

I am a cup filing with regret

So many missed moments

I thought we had time

This regret eats at me like a fly eats at a carcass

Soon there will be nothing left but bones
