It has been 2 months since we last saw each other.
It is such a long time but it doesn’t feel like it.
I miss you every single day that I wake up, though.
I feel you close but I don’t see you anywhere.
And I ask myself, why?
I wonder as I gaze to the sky.
Where are you right now?
What are you doing?
I know that we both share the same sky and it’s stars.
But ever since you left, the sky has even more stars than ever.
I visit the last place that I saw you in every now and then.
Everything is gone.
All of our memories together are nothing but that: Memories.
All of our favorite places, our names that we graffitied at the park.
It’s all gone.
I visit town hall, where you last stood.
Before time took you away from me forever.
I now look up and remember that clock that stood there at town hall.
It is no longer there and I hope to never see it again.
Oh how I hate it.
In the end, I shrug.
And I turn my back to the place where you last stood in.
Stepping into all the sludge left behind.
I know that somewhere up above there you are.
Along with everybody else that was with you on that day.
Yesterday marked 2 months after the tragedy.
And although things are getting better,
Although things will be rebuilt,
The city that I once knew and cherished will be gone forever.
Along with you.
Even though I know that things will go back to normal,
Your memory still resonates in me.
And it haunts me.
Along with the memory of all the other people screaming and running all around me.
As the world crumbles around us.
I love you, and I love you all.
We will see each other some day, but till then…
Shall that faithful day resonate in my dreams forever.
Dedicated to my dear city of Jojutla, Morelos in Mexico and all the victims of mother nature on Tuesday, September 19th, 2017. This is specially dedicated to a neighbor of mine, who was killed by the clock at Town Hall and to her husband, which spends his days in mourn. May she, him and their child and everybody else that lost their lives rest in peace.
And may all of us who witnessed such a tragedy find peace within ourselves.
With love, Karuchan.
