Polarities

There are mornings I get lost

Staring out over the horizons

As if I’m watching my life play

Ignoring its memories, we made

Trying to comfort those feelings

Unaware tears have been falling

Nothing prepares you for- gone

Words sound foolish and wrong

Even if some sentiments are pure

Pain can’t distinguish life past hurt     

I’ve felt fires that were a bit cooler

I’ve felt no words that cut me deeper

Making friends with your finality

Is beyond anything left here… in me

  1. “Nothing prepares you for -gone”
    When the vet said to me “he’s gone” I was not prepared – even though I was holding him and KNEW this was happening.
    That statement has never been more true.
