    MA, this genuinely made me miserable. I don't mean that comically, but it really did leave me feeling bereft of hope. 'the morning tastes flat in my mouth...' - I do love that line.

    Take care and all the very best as ever,
    Ben

    Without duplicating Ben's comment all I can say is I'm with Ben on this one.. This piece generally made me feel sad to, I really felt your yearning for this person, your grief etc this is a relatable piece to many of us and I'm very glad to see it nominated because even in its 'simplicity' it's an extremely powerful piece which brought tears to my eyes

    anything...

    I find it very difficult to portray or analogize the feelings I have, especially those of loss.
    You seem to convey these feelings with ease here, well written and very deserved win.
    More please
