Rest easy, my dearest heart

“I should know enough about the loss to realize that you never really stop missing someone – you just learn to live around the huge gaping hole of their absence.” – Alyson Noel

There is something about death that eats away at your being.

There is something about death that is life altering

No matter how much we work on filling up the cracks, the broken pieces could never fit the same again

Death is heart numbing Exhausting Rude Invasive And at times, merciless

Death is like the hand that keeps taking.

It does not grow weary of coming back for more.

Today, death has snatched away someone so precious to me. Suddenly, the world doesn’t quite make sense to me.

The sweet singing of the birds is a screeching noise.

The warmth of the sun too harsh on my skin.

The cooling air, an unbearable heavy gust of wind

Somehow my legs are no longer able to carry me

Today I am too selfish to make it about you

Today I am too broken to even dare celebrate the life you lived

Today every bone is me is aching

Rest easy, dear heart
