Living within the hollow of grief...

Journey into Silence 

© Kelly_Shaw2001 

Did you ever weep so hard snot runs from your nose, mixing with tears
before it seeps passed your lips? Did your heart ever hurt so sharply 
that you knew it beat within a spindly thicket? Did you ever leave a 
field and walk toward the horizon knowing you would never make it? Did 
you ever stand in a storm feeling so splattered with sodden clay that 
your arms would not move? Did you ever ride a wild wind to somewhere 
just to be alone with the emptiness of a life that would never recover 
its beauty? Did you ever go to that place where the whistling of death 
is easier on the ears than the music of life? Did you ever feel so 
detached, so afraid, that the simple act of bringing forth a memory 
brings to life the quivering of a ghost? Did you ever feel you wanted 
to grab the next person by the throat that reassuringly told you time 
heals? Did you ever feel so helpless that eyes flame, cheeks hollow, 
blood sings, bones hone brittle, tears contain blood and trickle, 
thickly, toward heartbreak? 

Grief is the master of silence.
