Grief is like Sneezing

  Grief is like sneezing Sometimes it catches you unaware Sometimes it's short and sharp Other times it goes on and on Have you ever tried to hold one in? Sneezes don't respect quiet places Or a crowded room There's always someone who has to ask Whether you really have to Can't you hide it... Continue Reading →

When I am Dead, My Dearest

When I am dead, my dearest Write no sad posts for me Remove me from your friends list And wipe me from the ether Whether there are balloons or bears Abandoned and mildewing And if you want, remember And if you want, forget I shall not see the banalities I shall not miss any connection...

The Missing

Out the door And never to return So I stand waiting Waiting and dreading If there had been goodbye I could have wished you well Told you how much you are loved And known for sure If you really meant to go I understand the need For greener pastures For somewhere safe So I hope... Continue Reading →

Before My Time

I gasped, trying to clutch reality, trying to stop the world from completely slipping from my fingers.  I can do this, I tell myself.  I cannot believe otherwise.  If I do then where will it end?  The world, my world, my life, everything will fall away, it will be the crash of a tower of...
