I Can Only Weep

Just when I thought
I could laugh
mouth wide
open
Something smacks me in the face
like a brick
breaking my jaw
I cannot speak
I can only weep
Just when I thought
I was awake
eyes wide
open
Something hits me in the head
like a brick
breaking my brain
I cannot think
I can only weep
Right when I believed
I was alive
moving
on
Something strikes me in the chest
like a knife
piercing my heart
I cannot let go
I can only weep

    Jenni, you’ve captured the pain… the pathos… the magic of poetry. Is this recent pain, or a memory etched forever in your heart and mind?

  2. Jenni says:

    @Debra I lost my sister in Feb. And I was trying to move on and get past it. But, tonight I ended up reading a poem on another site I am on about someone who lost their sister to cancer and it opened up the flood gates and my tears is what penned this. Forever etched in my heart doesn't even begin to explain.

    @Alpana I have lost people at all stages of my life and I swear the longer he person is in your life the harder it is to let them go. Every day I am telling my daughter a story about her aunt and me and I stand strong, despite what people think you cannot claim to love anyone and just act like they never existed when they are gone. Anyone who says you need to move on and forget has never known love. I will check it out thanks for sharing. My life took a sudden turn as well. Every thing I use to deal with I dropped out of my life except my husband and kids. Nothing else mattered anymore and in all honesty it still don't. Much love to you….don't forget them cherish their memory.

Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare The truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare. -Voltaire
