A Mom Shaped Void

An absence of words

engulfs this bottomless cry

born from the day

goodbye was thrust upon me

This wound may have

arrived with warning

Yet it sliced from within

so precisely and so viciously

a mom shaped void

The burning

questions, worries, doubts

unable to ever escape

my trembling lips

now hover timelessly

over every inch and every age

of my being

A haunting

permanent silence resides

where conversations

that never began

are now forever impossible

  1. Your words carried the heaviness and seeming permanence of the pain. You write wonderfully. I was so happy to see your name pop up on the reader again. Understand if this is only thing you will be sharing for awhile/maybe ever. But thank you for sharing. Sending you love and good wishes ❀️
