I've been trying for a while now to capture the sorrow I feel for the loved ones I miss, and the responsibility I feel for the things I've done that made them go.
Though I have tried many times, I've not been able to find the words in standard prose. Though I don't consider myself a poet and likely neither will you. Sometimes the lilt of a sonnet, a song, or a rhyme is the only way I can accurately express what is seared into my heart.
This is dedicated to anyone who has ever lost someone. May they visit your dreams.
Last night you visited my dreams.
Eyes wide open, salty tears.
You’ve still been gone for all these years.
