something\\'s lost

entry picture

sometimes surviving is the hardest part

you live alone

you heal your heart.


but something's lost.


you carry on,

it looks the same.

from the outside.


you are so strong.


things are going right.


but something's lost.

Beautiful, deep simplicity. lets the reader own the piece too. It accounts for all our missing pieces. They are safe in your poem. Happy Christmas em x

I like this. It is deceptively simple and touches on both healing and a deeper disappointment with life than the loss, though great, might suggest. As Francine says we can all read our own experience into it
