Once you received THAT call...

Contributed by LadyCC on Monday, 5th September 2016 @ 01:36:49 PM in AEST
Topic: Grief

I see you in my every second, yet -
I cannot touch you.

You are looking, yet -
It seems you are looking through me.

I hear you, yet -
You are inaudible.

With you always here, yet -
A whole existence away.


No water, yet -
Drowning in silence.

No shade, yet -
Lost in a forest of sorrow.

Always on the go in a busy day, yet -
Frozen in that one moment in time.

Running a million miles per minute, yet -
Not going anywhere else but "Memoryville".

Why did you have to die and leave me empty?

Emotionally beautiful wrapped in a delicate and vulnerable sadness. Very raw without shelter. Well done.

Dear LadyCC

All I can do is.......
No there is nothing I can do.
I know your sorrow and pain.
I know, no matter what anyone does.
It never subsidies no matter what.
However I/'/m here for you.
God bless and beautiful piece you have here.

I can/'/t begin to understand just how intense that loss must feel.
Must be like having a knife stuck into your heart. At least in some way we can partly share your feelings through your words.
However, I know that what you went through and are still going through can never really be fully expressed.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
