Daily missive for Wednesday the 31st of October~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 31st of October

Is there betrayal
In happiness
Even though it be for a moment
Is it even a true emotion
When tinged with
The pain of sorrow
Will it end tomorrow
There is no
Time limit
Imposed on sadness
Another emotion sullied
With complexity
A certain ambiguity
When some people
Find pleasure in pain
What is the gain
In holding on
To what has been lost
At the cost
Of the future
When every day
Is another journey
Into an unknown land
Without a hand
To pull you through
Is it a true reflection
Of grief
To lock your heart away
Drape a cloth across
A mirror
Dress in black
Drink a quart of Jack
Spend every night
Counting the days
In denial
Of the need
To be free
Of the guilt
You are the survivor
