Veil of Silence

Rate: 12 Flag

Right now

on this stop which

I know so well

I speak to you

do you hear me

 

This place

of dense quiet

where I come often

to catch an impression

of you

 

As the clouds move in

a vault of darkness

consumes me

a veil of deeper silence

falls around me

 

The breeze stirs

I wonder if it’s the whispers

of the voices of those

laid to rest here

that I hear

 

At this moment

your absence weighs

heavy on me

it’s been months

yet it feels fresh and raw

 

I feel the flames of my anguish

being fanned and stirred alive

my throat has become thick

my breathing irregular

fresh tears are spilled

 

The ground below me

is still disturbed

it reminds me of a wound

that has not healed

much like my scared soul

 

The loss of you

is more than I can bear

this being the first

Easter without you

this was your favorite holiday

 

The pure white lilies

I lay upon your grave

look obscene on the roughened earth 

they will decay here

I force myself to stop this train of thought

 

Your name an exhalation on my lips

I wonder if I’ll get past this grief

I wonder if I’ll recover and reconnect

with my life again I also wonder

if the living are heard by the dead

Very well conveyed as to loss and how we each deal with it. Death is a bittersweet portion of life that is never easy to accept, it is always ' fresh and raw'.
Blisteringly clear images bring the reader to the space right next to you in your experience. Brilliant. R
You will, it will take time and much effort to reach out and give the love you have reserved for one to everyone else in your life. It took me a very long time, but I have faith now and love the life I have even if it is without him. He told me, last time I visited the cemetery that he loved to see me smiling again.

M. C. S.,

I think you've been heard. This poetry is serenely still and profoundly deep.
You and I have so much in common. All I can do is hug you with words. Continue to speak from deep in your heart. This was my second Easter without my perfect partner, it doesn't get easier, just different. We never know those whom we touch and in what ways or how many; but you do, you do.
"Dense quiet"

Just one example of how so very well you write!
I am so sorry for your loss, MCS. Your beautiful writing and your sorrow both touched my heart deeply. Best wishes ... and a big hug.
I believe the living are heard by the dead, and that grief heals in time. Take care on this difficult holiday for you. Sending love your way.
EXCELLENT!
