Grief

I am out of place like
A language I do not speak;
I opened my mouth,
And they watched it bleed.

They said they were sorry for my loss;
But I forgot what I had before it was gone.
The hole I held wide open— 
The defeat,
Like a memory I waited for her to complete.

Happiness is a rebellion;
And this is my retreat.
Whatever I lost, I couldn’t reach;
I open up again to a thief,
And can never stand to watch them leave.

I no longer feel the need.

To keep,
To grieve,
To recover,
To believe.

I was broken long before the reprieve.
