An Untold Life


Surrounding me with a sadness, expounding laments single file,
taking me on a journey of explicit grief.
Not caring how I can handle it, just piling it upon my heart
and mind, burying me beyond grave markers, nearer to the sun
than I could ever get.
Bowing my head, watching vision blurred by hundreds of tears
rushing out, because of heartache taking over my interior soul
with implied empathy and rhetoric for a life untold on earth.
