Sadness, depression /
It feels light to you, doesn’t it?
The weight of this,
of running errands,
laundry day, nine a.m. meetings,
pleating memories, hunting down
the words that look like your
mind the most.
You do that. Daily,
nightly, momently, and the beating
muscle behind your ribcage never
hurts. Why would it hurt?
The weight is barely discernible,
It’s the burden that is heavy.
It’s heavy, really,
when you’ve been holding
that weight alone for years, and
grief won’t stop pressing
your lungs with its
My eyes can only covet sleep.
I fell under the weight of your death.
