It’s ok to be sad,
when only nothing is left.
It’s ok to feel bad,
for something now gone.
To be down
when pain lies on its wake
for only remnants are ours to take.
to speak words of silence,
that our screamy minds won’t ear,
by those who said that cared,
who pretended to be there.
Our words to them in vain indeed,
but our souls are strong
although our bodies weak,
marked floors with steps of leave
painted grass with fallen tears,
a path found
leading us away from what is no longer here.
