    hi i would love some feedback on these poems...
    i wrote this after going through the funeral of someone i loved. its like a list of all the little routine things we must do even in times of tragedy to keep the order. its called losing you.

    There are no words
    just shocked silence that can't be filled
    and constant tears that threaten to spill
    there are phones to ring and people to tell
    the knocking doors with their mournfull bells

    and heaving sighs
    and tentitive smiles
    all gathering round
    without a sound
    and awkward hugs
    and tea filled mugs
    and swollen eyes
    and wondering why

    and that one moment when you wake up and you dont remember for a second

    but still. there are no words.
    just cards and floweres
    and tick tocking hours
    sweet whispered prayers
    crying its not fair!
    and pats on backs and shakes of heads
    rigid, textbook comforts to be said

    and a million hands reaching out to hold mine
    and me just wishing
    that one
    was yours.
