Past tense - A lived experience poem

I cannot speak of you in past tense

references to suicide, self-harm and mental health
This content has a custom transcript:

I cannot speak of you in past tense

Because then I'd have to believe

That you are gone

From my Present

My future

To never

Hear your laughter

See your smile

Feel your love

To speak of you in past tense makes it too
