I had to bottle up my grief, when my dad died. It was sudden when death came like a thief. It was I, just a girl with tears to hide; that went to the funeral home, while outside my bottle was the world. I still see those caskets where I had to roam, and pick one- while in my bottle I curled. I took time before I could shatter the glass, and accept what is but the grief will not pass. _____________________________ March 27, 2018 Poetry/Rhyme/My Bottle Of Grief Copyright Protected, ID 18-1008-212-01 All Rights Reserved.

Well expressed, but so sad. I can empathize, Broken Wings. A creative gift can seem a curse, when grief is addressed, since the rawness must be felt for the pain to be expressed. hug :) Congrats! ~ Artsie

A beautiful poem, BW. I can relate slightly to your sadness as I'm at that age where my entire family is gone save one sister who I call as much as possible. Congratulations and I'll say a prayer for your Dad.
