Loss Is In My Eyes – Written Friday 27th January 2012 (Aged 36)

Loss Is In My Eyes

i am being good,
but loss,
it is in my eyes
not quite ready –
to socialise
friends are close
family too
i miss them the most
all this is new
hard to digest
hard to chew
this is –
a completely different view
this is life
but a different end
broken hearts
and hearts to mend
i am being good
and if she was here
she would be proud
but just right now
i cannot be part of a crowd
no need to stand out
even if, inside,
i scream and shout
