Mother


My bones steep in longing. The numbness is fading.
The ache in my heart: radiating, palpable
I float on a buoy of sadness.

I stare at the wall, seeing nothing at all.
Her memory: binding my body
It's been but a year since she left me.

She was larger than life. I suppose she still is.
Comprehension: settling in the pit of my soul
Now the real work begins; I can feel it.

I lived in her womb. Now I live in her reference.
Solace: wandering the world 'til he finds me
Nostalgia sticks to the back of my tongue.

They say Love never dies. Well, she's coupled with Grief.
Acceptance: fleeting and elusive
Anguish, painting sorrow on the sunrise.

She was a fighter. Her blood is my blood.
Courage: seeping from crevices in my psyche
A new scar is forming; a new day begins.
