Unchecked tears cover me like a blanket
And a strange void pierces my soul
Grief imprints itself upon my delicate heart
My lifeless life feels strangely controlled.
One by one, I collect my broken pieces
And bravely tie them on broken strings
The pain is teaching me to live again
But I keep seeing you in angel’s wings.
My heart, a black raven
Screams into a dead silence
You left, left too soon
A heartbeat full of symphonies
A symphony full of memories.
No séance would bring you back
As my acid tears burn me
Now all that is left
Is your symphony of memories…
A/N: This poem is extremely personal to me and very close to my heart. Many of us have lost our loved ones during the pandemic. The grief experienced is beyond words. But I have tried to express the emotion, the dilemma I went through, and probably am still going through.
Hope you and yours and safe and healthy. Sending love to all ♥♥❣
