Dense and cumbersome

on my chest



an unwanted guest


Like a sentence

I must serve my time


Forever reminds me

how you’re no longer mine

          Very emotive write. That silence can be so loud at times.

            It so can be, thanks for reading Goldfinch60 x

          • Laura

            The silence you’ve
            scribed is the unwelcomed
            silence because it hurts
            so much! Think of all the
            happy times and perhaps
            those memories will let the
            pain subside!

            Hugs 🤗

            • LittleGift

                  I loved this !!! This is how I feel until I realize life is REAL!!

                  • LittleGift

                    Thanks Andrew for reading and the lovely comment, yes we must remind ourselves we are living still. Hard to do when lost in that moment but yes life is very much REAL. Well said !
