My Grandmother died, and I have not penned my loss
 nor I have stooped to pick her rose
and smell the scent of her.

I can not allow the sights to emerge, 
when I must close my eyes,
 I can not afford to let her go

nor allow myself to go with.

There is a world of grief and screaming
covered in my intellectualizing

but I can neither nod hello or whisper goodbye,
I must stay this path she set.

    If this came from RL, I am sorry for your lost. Grammas are very dear to my own heart too. This is a great piece that you wrote, you conveyed sorrow and desperation with a sublime intensity...
