Sunday’s Poetry Post

Validation for Mourning


I won’t cry

When you die.

Won’t say goodbye,

Blink an eye.


I won’t comply

To another lie;

Quietly stand by,

Barely scrape by.


I won’t deny,

Or blindly defy,

A blood tie

Now wrung dry.


I won’t try

To understand why;

Will not sigh,

Walk on by.


I will cry

For love awry;

Rise to fly

Beyond the sky.
