two-word lines

you died

heart shattered

Breathing cut

eyes stung


pulse raced

sweat poured

body shook

memories pained

i drove

marriages happened

babies birthed

life continued

hearts wept

life awry

you died

    ….. I come here specifically to read your posts.
    Time keeps passing and even with blocks of it where I know we function, we cannot get beyond the “he died” part.
    Problem is I know I never will, which make my choices much more narrow even though my intellectual mind says I can choose anything.

    I love this. So succinct and excruciating.
