“In the Company of Grief”

I sit in darkness
unable to feel the warmth of the sun
the caress of the wind
the kiss of the rain
the security of the earth.
I sit alone
but in the company of grief.
The faces of lost souls appear
memories of voices speaking but unheard
for I cover my ears
unwilling to hear their goodbyes
unable to let them go.

Inspired by a conversation this morning, and the prompt by Robert Lee Brewer at Writer’s Digest’s Poetic Asides.
