The destruction lingers

I am saddened by the destruction caused by grief.
I am saddened by the destruction caused by drugs.
I am saddened by the destruction caused by the tongue,
by the emotions.
I am saddened by the destruction of this family.
It started years ago,
It continues today.
The angry words said by some to others.
Those who negate that there were two victims that day, 5 years ago.
Those who negate that she was a victim too.
Those who negate that she has to find a way to live without him too,
after planning a life with him.
Those who negate that she has to find a way to live a life not seeing him laying on that floor,
in that puddle of blood,
not hearing him cry.
Those who negate that she has to find a way to live a life not reliving that she was kidnapped.
Those who negate that she has to find a way to live a life not reliving the rapes,
the terror, the moments of hopelessness.

And they think they have lost the most.
Their grief has caused them to be short sighted.
This saddened me so.

She has endured so much and lost so much more then it seems the selfish will ever know.

I am saddened by the destruction.

  1. What about the delusions… The delusion that anything you say is real… The delusions of a woman who adds…”artistic rights” to her life and get on memories. The delusion that you are not the one helplessly lost in your own story. The delusions that keep anyone who truly knows your soul… To run… Run as far as possible and never turn back…. And the delusion that your son hasn’t already figured that out.

    • Thank you for reading this Wola-Do.

      Yes, deep feelings, many emotions follow the loss of someone and all that this entails.

      Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.
