I lost you
Forever torn
Forever lost
Stricken with grief
I love you
Hope you're at peace
Even If I am not
Opal Wood Jun 5
Ever since he died
I have felt a void
Tormenting my mind
Killing me slowly
I block it with remedies
Allowing them to rule me
Until reality hits and I crumble
Grief will never understand it's damage

June is an ugly reminder
Our little sunflower boy
Lays peacefully in his dreamlike state
Forever blessed with no more demons
Among his tomb
Lies a garden of sunflowers
Sunflower boy
He was my older brother

Leave us in the past
Darling I have defeated you
To you
I mean nothing less
Than a simple ****

Grief is the never ending burden we attach ourselves to because we can't forget our loss and what it changed 💔

I know that when I’m gone
you will mock me for my selfishness
for taking my life away from you
but please know,
that I lived my life bound by selflessness
I lived to serve and please
I recited my poems in rehearsal
so my last words could comfort you
and you’d never feel to do the same as I
I scar my flesh to bear my cross
So you may never have to.
Please know,
I lived every day confined by others needs
I listened to your woes
I starve my body to bear your cross
So you may never have to.
Know that this last act I take isn’t selfish
That my last act is one of freedom
It will be my only act of self-indulgence
in my life of catering you.
my final act is one of freedom
I died to please myself
Opal Wood May 30
I hear these ghastly creatures
Like vemon in a snake
Their words torment me
Until I drink to avoid the sound
Like a void of reality
