Day 21: over and over

Crying is the new normal



So lost in the depths of grief

No words express

Thousands upon thousands of lives

Not a single one

Could be saved,

For all valiant attempts

Cannot hold a human here

If they are wanted elsewhere

There was a time

When the darkness

Was so complete that I nearly

Forgot how to breathe.

There is a time for everything,

Over and over perhaps the time plays,

Until the everythings we once knew

Are no longer there and

We no longer have need nor recollection

Naked, I stop the tears from falling

Held in my lover’s arms

Gently he helps me begin to heal



He calls me back to where he is




He calls the cluttered grieving wounded cells of me

And I return

Begin again

Over and over the everythings we know play out
