Grief 

  
My grief is knotted up in my stomach…

Pressing and swelling 

Kicking and burning 
Constantly reminding 

My grief is tangled in my head

Aching and spinning 

Pretending you are not dead 

Constantly pounding 

My grief is sticking in my throat

Memories will never go

Tears that burn to be known

Regurgitating and swallowing

Constantly haunting 

My grief is in my eyes 

Swollen and lifeless

Closed with no brightness

Constantly clouding

My grief is in my entire being

Sore and exhausted 

Empty and devastated 

Constantly reaching 

My grief is black and blue

Bruised and broken without you 

My grief is red and dark

Life is dull with no sparks

My grief is white 

A colorless life

Limping toward tomorrow 

Thinking maybe you will be there 

Or I will be 

There 

My grief is a sea of seven stages 

Constantly flowing

Body lullaby 



As I move my body

I crave your eyes 
Following me
Wet the beats
Playing between the
Music sheets
Notes scream and hush
As your hands caress
My hips that rock and sway
Oh the longing for you
To crack me open
So far away
You’ve barely seen
The music box humming within
Close your eyes
Feel my energy 
Riveting 
Dancing
My body’s lullaby 
Sings to you 
…Imagine
