Painkillers won’t stop the pain

My heart won’t feel


Tears won’t flow

It’s hard to close the seal



It’s time to let go


She already did


My mind racing

Memories floating


Take a deep breath

No way to get rid


This pressure builds up

A headache starts to turn

Pop a few more Tylenol

Forgot to eat first

A little heartburn


Close my eyes

Breathe again

Try to clear my mind


Thoughts confused

Feelings restrained

Can’t fall asleep


Finally words flow

At least one outlet will give

A bit of peace


A release to cope with this


All I know

We’re all going to miss
