Wounded - a poem

Post by Tootle » Wed May 29, 2013 10:46 am

I haven't been here for a while, been trying to move forward... On Saturday will be the third anniversary of the last time I spoke with my brother, I wrote this poem for the occasion,

This grief is a beast of its own
It's a soft, sick, sort of dreading feeling
It's sweet melancholy won't let up

Bland, empty, desolate and yearning
For the happiness of yesterday
This sick inner winter is hopeless

The fools of the past are hauntingly silent
Just echoes of lost dreams
And inner screams, pointing fingers

This huge wound isn't healing, it weeps
It seeps poison that infects everything
With any joy comes intense sorrow

Not really sure how to live without it
In memory of my big brother Rob, my hero and best friend.

To forget time. To forgive life. To be at peace.

(((Tootle))) Very touching. Thank you for sharing it with us. I will be thinking of you on Saturday.

I thought I would lay down and die after losing my Son to suicide.
Instead I chose to fight the monster that killed him.

"Not sure how to live without it".

So so true.

And something that comes to light when that beast has been named, described, wrestled with (for me).

it is good to have this place to come back to.

thank you for sharing your poem.

Tootle, my very best wishes for some ballast to see you right, through and beyond this Saturday.
