We don’t speak of it-
the loss silencing
our world.
How arrogant of the sun
to rise
when we were facing
 the black hole emptiness
not enough breathing space
for our own grieving.
Some pain can’t be shared,
sometimes we are islands
surrounded by restless current
fearing if we were to plunge
we’d breathe in anothers tears
and drown.
It was good to love you,
but oh how the earth trembled
                                                          when we had to say goodbye.

For deverse 10/10/13 Friends


  1. mmm strong write...strong sentiment...the how dare the sun....smiles...i have felt that...and while we can not hare i think we can know we have all been there....good byes are never easy....

  2. Saying good-bye is never easy to one that we love. But it is good to have loved.......and to have the memories.

  3. The last 3 lines, very moving Lisa ~ Some pain can't just be shared ~

  4. "It was good to love you" Moving toward that line and then away I feel the pain and the love.

  5. Gut wrenching, Beautiful, Touching...I could go on and on.

  6. You know I love this one...I remember reading it when you posted it moving, Lisa.

  7. How does the sun dare to rise? -- a terrible statement - but that is such it feels. A sadness that is desperate.

  8. Powerful and moving poem you words are always perfectly chosen, filled with emotion
