Grief

Hands on the wall
Drowning in air
Preparing to fall
Gasping
Gasping
Breathe
Hands slip
Reaching
To feel what?
Nothing
Slam
Dead oak floor
Dizzy
Crying
How it hurts to remember
Breathe
Breathe
How it hurts to remember
Shaking
Shaking
Limbs too twisted to
Stand
Much less
Walk
How it hurts to remember
Screaming
Screaming
Out of air
Out of sanity
Losing control
Head pounding
It hurts to remember
Quiet
Quiet
Nothing is moving
Nothing is there
How it hurts to remember that
You are
Gone
