This is a poem dedicated to one of my closest friends, Samuel, who passed away after undergoing heart surgery, I shall always miss him but I will also remember how he was and the many happy moments we shared.
Once vibrant and cheerful
but now sombre and grey,
the room of beating hearts
has been tainted with pain
and needless misery.
A life once cherished and loved
silenced by the unpredictability
of the forking of roads once
full of determination and strength.
A life has been stolen by the cruelty
of the essence of time.
Tears are shed almost endlessly,
like the elegant flowing fountain found
within a blossoming garden.
Happy memories become painful to
remember, like pointed nails
stabbing in to my delicate skin.
Grief, confusion, and anger all
roll in to one like a congealed
mess suffocating my very thoughts,
a life has been stolen from this
world leaving nothing but ashes
Although now pain is my only friend
I know one day I shall be reunited
with that cherished life for darkness
is destined to transform into
