A time for mourning

The time for mourning is near

That’s what the voice quietly said

Time to process all the losses

Time to really feel what it means

Time to let the blood flow

You are far from healed

the tiny whisper was so loud

The memories will haunt you

The pain will trickle in

until you find it hard to breathe

try not to suffocate

the voice warned

It’s inevitable

you knew this was coming

you know it’s going to be hard

and you can’t do anything about it

except weep

and feel it, all of it

the voice slowly drifted off.

I know it’s going to hurt, it already does

It’s a never ending dull ache that I can’t soothe

Like a scar that marks me forever

I cannot forget all that has happened

How my life has changed

In a matter of a year

The events that led to this

The tragic, traumatic events

remind me of

what I’ve lost

and what I’ve gained

Resulting in this ceaseless pain

The pain that shows me

that everything has a ripple effect

That life is fleeting

That nothing is without sacrifice

and pain

Lots of pain
