Grief’s Shadow


You can’t ask them why they left you behind.
You can’t ask them why their name hurts rolling off your tongue.
You can’t dream of Neverland, or stay forever young.
You can’t fix it with your words, your thoughts, or even your prayer.
A part of the world will forever be missing because they’ll never be there.

Anxiety is coming back in.
Overpowering my heart and lungs, there’s no way for me to win.
I thought you were gone. I thought your memory had faded.
You’ve still stuck with me.
My soul feels the guilt in every defeat.
Will it ever be good enough for peace?

The fear is setting in again and I’m falling apart, I can’t breath! There goes another piece of the puzzle.
Can I ever be complete?
