Passing

What do you say when a pet passes?

The loss may feel so overwhelming,

you wish to curl up in a ball in a cave,

and fall asleep, never to wake.

It may cut so close to your core

that you can’t take a moment,

you can’t even begin to lament yet,

or make anyone else understand

how you’ll never forget each

moment spent in adoration

of eachother’s being.

Now they’re just out of reach.

Just around the next corner.

The doorbell rings.

Silence.

That never

would have

happened before.

About SIDEWAYS EIGHT

Being heard, stirred, and perhaps cured by life's many hidden images and the written-spoken word.
