Don’t catch my sorrow,
keep your distance today
tears are contagious,
just stay right away.
I can’t be cheered up
you won’t give me relief,
I want to be by myself.
Alone, with my grief. .
Do you see the sadness in my eyes,
or would it come as a surprise
to find out that my heart is hollow,
or how much of my hurt I swallow..?
Do you notice my unhappy soul?
Each tear I cry taking it’s toll..
My endless pain is worse each day,
my rock developed feet of clay…
The grief I carry haunts my mind
the child’s face, time left behind.
I struggle through another week
with sorrow rolling down my cheek.
Her lock of hair sits in a box.
My broken heart continues beating.
Life carry’s on, she’s left back in time.
Minutes with her were too fleeting.
Her soul stands beside me
unseen are her tears.
She wishes I’d live without pain.
But my arms want my girl,
my eyes ache for her face.
Every morning the hurt starts again.
I only have four sleeps to go.
My anklet comes off in 96 hours.
What a year it’s been!!
The judge gave me a sentence of time.
Time to reflect.
Time to grieve.
Time to accept.
I haven’t gone crazy being stuck at home.
I still cry everyday.
But I’ve begun to live everyday again too.
It’s always there.
Even when I’m preoccupied with the task at hand,
I’ve become used to the weight of it now.
I’ve learnt how to distract myself from it.
I’ve learnt how to live with the agony.
Most of the time…
It’s always there though.
