That Time In 2019

That time in 2019...

When hell had struck
upon my life,
the loss of two angels
had never crossed my mind.

There was a dying wish
on their beloved faces,
which I failed to retrive
while I was stuck in fear.

Time passed slowly
as they were going underneath.
My happiness was lost,
once I realized it was all real.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem when I attended my first funerals and damn I don't wanna visit a graveyard again...The thought of losing the one you love is excruciating.

    I wrote the poem 'Time Passes Slowly Not In Cicada Song Environmental Issues' inspired by the poem 'That Time In 2019' by the poet Arb Rudi and dedicated to Arb Rudi.

    'Time passed slowly'

    Some good lines, I have a question, with regard to the seriousness of the topic, what do you really want to say?

    Write that, write well. Some nice lines, the question is do you want to express more?

    Basically I'm trying to live with the fact that some people died and I cannot make sense of it as to why? or how did they die? . I cannot believe it honestly, but life goes on and this is just another bump on the road.

    Time passed slowly
    as they were going underneath.
    My happiness was lost,
    once I realized it was all real.
