my grief is that of death.
and to see you is to recall times shared.
you are here, but you are gone.
the spirit that remains of you is hatred towards all that i am.
it lowers me in this well of sadness.
your burden passed on. my hopes fall.
you preach of forgiveness, yet lose those words as you speak.
your compassion has run dry.
scars should never run so deep.
i miss you. i have missed you for so long.
but heartfelt apologies are never enough for the unforgiving.
and in the end, there is love.
after all that has changed, there is love.
how many things said that cannot be taken back.
how many actions misunderstood.
how many times we laughed...together.
the years have a way about them.
once you get past the recent, the others come like a gift from an old friend.
so warm and tender are those memories, unlike the cold faces and hearts of today.
will there ever be a moment in time when we can bury this knife in a grave, instead of in each others back
i wish i had the answer. i wish you could see where you reside in my heart.
not in a cold, dark cell, but wrapped in love. softly blanketed.
never to see a moment of sadness. but know that my heart grieves for your loss.
it aches to know that you are here, but you are gone.
far from me.
i miss you and love you.
