I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Dealing with loss is a poem about how she feels when she has lost someone close to her. She pretends she is fine as she hears the well meaning words and feels the embraces of others. But she wants to hide away beneath the covers, flipping through the pictures in her mind.
"You Should Be Here" by Cole Swindell
Dealing With Loss
The heartache of losing a loved one
rips her inner soul to shreds,
tears fill her mournful eyes
as she focuses on words left unsaid.
Pictures flash across her mind
taking her on a trip down memory lane,
bringing her a few brief moments of joy
while she stands still pretending she is fine,
tears stream down her cheeks
as she wishes for time to turn backwards.
Her ears hear the well meaning words
trying to comfort her with warm embraces,
as others reach out with a shoulder to lean upon
but today she doesn’t feel like being strong,
she only wants to run and hide,
to curl up beneath the covers,
and flip through the pictures in her mind.
