——-My sister was murdered by her husband on May 26th 2010. The mourning never ends. See you on the other side, my lovely Kay.—-
Your face is fading.
I see the outline inside my mind.
Eyes. Ears. High Cheekbones.
Your perfect nose.
I am terrified of letting go.
I only know a world with
You loving me.
Your hair covers me like a dark water.
The long strands caught between my teeth.
I see your smile beneath, distant, blurred.
A thick pink fog.
In my dreams, you are unreachable, untouchable.
Sitting on a ledge, an edge, leaning away
When I awaken, your name is written upon my lips.
Your voice lifts thru air like a million brilliant birds.
You slide next to me in words.
You rise from the soil, the marble, the grave.
You rise over and over again.
—–This poem is dedicated to Michael, Aaron, & Jordan. I Love YOU all sooooooooooooo MUCH.
