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.


It’s ok.

It’s fine,

to speak words of silence,

that our screamy minds won’t ear,

when abandoned

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.
