The Thought Of 'Forever' - Poem by Raghda Ashraf Soliman

Well they said it is life but she hadn’t believed it
Always thought of the “forever” belabored
But as days passed she was afraid to admit
That it is was becoming more of a meaningless word

But those special years were so evocative
Yet it was a lie on top of a lie that it would “outlive”
The old him seemed like someone she barely knew
Grief had its hand around her but it was true

The word came out so awful and sharp as a knife
Stupidly mistaken for wanting to become his wife
she tried to rock her weight back on her heels
and her throat squeezed up a knot as if was sealed
