Why?

Loss.
Such a small word
harbors such devastation.
No explanation,
a lack of understanding,
things change too quickly.
In the blink of an eye
people are gone.
They turn away and
I'm left
with only this word.
This word
which means so many things,
I'm unable to explain.
Without choice
I am left with only
one thought,
one question:
"Why?"

  1. Nicely written, a meaningful release, your poem lets the question (why?) have its way. ox

  4. This is really good. Emotive yet controlled. If you want writer-ly feedback I have a teensy suggestion which I think will tighten it up (just my opinion of course). Nice work. Keep writing!
