The Funeral

Once a ship at sea destined to sink

That is all

That is left

Taking part of the ocean we call our heart

With you.


Now an empty chair,

All alone in a corner.

Now a filled box lying peacefully,

Eternally cold.


A cross surrounded by a swarm of black,

So many both old and young.

The water pouring down to the tune of a sentence

Like heavy waterfalls falling from the red sky above.


Eyes like glass mirrors,

Shattering even more

With each step

Following


So many people gathered,

Joined in their love, respect, care

For that one special person

Who changed so many lives

in one night.


The weary, sad skies,

Matching the mood.

The cold wind biting at skin

Yet ignored by all


The beautiful flowers waiting to be placed,

Those five white letters,

Signifying that this is no nightmare,

This is real


Now the filled box is filling its own hole

Accompanied by two lonely red roses,

Representing just two broken hearts

Out of so many more


All buried for eternity

Just like

You.

heironymousridiculous: Do I love you more because one of your parents was a narcissist? Or was it always that crumpled, refracted, white trash inheritance besieging my negative attachments until I’d eaten up all my carefully rationed self-esteem? Of course I was insane with hunger. Of course you never meant to hurt me ...
