My Sadness

May 10, 2010
By , Park City, UT
The sadness and sorrow,
Fill me to the brim.
I’m about to explode.
The barrel holding back my tears,
Is threatening to break.

‘I must stay strong’ I repeat to myself,
And over.

But, the uselessness of my efforts only increases,
The hot swell tears trying to immerge from the safety,
Of my eyelids.

Words can only hope to describe,
The burning feelings hiding within me.
I try to distract my mind.
But, it’s impossible.
Everything I say,
Everything I do,
Is bringing back memories of you.

‘Stay strong?’ I say to myself.
‘Yeah right. . .’
Finally it breaks.
The tears rush to the open gates.
And slide gracefully down my cheeks.

That was so amazing! I'm really really sorry for your loss. It's always so hard when someone you really care about leaves this world. Just remember to keep living life with strength!
