Feeling two different ways

…about the same situation.

Using alliteration, assonance, consonance, euphony and cacophony as described at Fight to Write! (Thanks Ace!)

initial ideas…

  • death of an abuser
  • death of an incestuous family member
  • death by suicide

DEATH DEATH DEATH
DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD
HATE HATE HATE
Grief stroked her hair
laid her down and covered her face
with kisses
cold comfort
Cry out and wail
sob and flail
useless hands
against
him.
DEAD
DEAD
GONE
sweet breath of relief
fears release
sharp pain, anguish, despair
Crunching up the gravel path
stony stare
DEATH

GONE
Open wound bare
Tended with care
Love lives where fear fled

Dread departed
We gather to forget-
me-not
ever
see you again.
