Dancing with Storms

Reality came crashing down
All delusions of control ceased.
The concept of a happy life,
Left me bereft without hope or peace.

How could I once again
Live without constant fear?
The fear of loss, the fear of change
The inevitable truth that you are not here.

Time tells me that I must live
My life it still continues
Yet every breath screams at me
From my bones and dusty sinews.

Dare I live my life again
Overcome my fears of loss
To be vulnerable and open
Exceeding every cost?

Yet whether I choose to really live,
Letting go of fears and pain
When loss does visit me once more,
I shall fall apart again.
