On Silence and Sadness

i’ve been quiet–

too quiet, too lost

in the pallid wash

of sadness.

everything hurts–

heart, hands, head,

i want to stop feeling a for bit

so i’ve been quiet–

too quiet.

This past week, I celebrated my 31st birthday and mourned the passing of my beloved Springer Spaniel, Ginger. Right now, I don’t know what to say or feel or do, but each day, I see a bit more hope. I thank you for your patience.
