I knew that guy when he was a caterpillar, you know, before he 'came out'


Sitting
Under our willow tree
Sighing
As you have left me
Left us
To explore
A new world
Heaven
All three of you
Gone
The tears stream down my face
Alone
Alone
Alone
I am.


The author's comments:
Two of my great grandma's and my great grandpa passed away over the course of six months. Also, my stepmother miscarried my only chance of another little brother. This has been so hard on my and my family. I have spent a lot of time considering the possibilities and reasons that something so terrible could happen to one person, and poetry seems to be my expression. Thank you all.

Really? Couldn't have picked a more inconspicuous screen name? :P
