  • Deliverance

    by Megan Chapman

    Sometimes the fog of numbness lifts for a minute
    And I find myself hard up against the grief...

  • My catastrophe; my faith,
    I'm a little lost in this world...

  • Creed

    by Hope

    Holy Sin breaking every moment,
    Love never tells a lie when it's only exile...

Sad Quotes

  • The saddest tears are the driest ones seen in the bravest smile.

  • Don't tell one who writes of grief to rethink their "I" statements. When you know they had tears on their hands as they wrote, don't say the poem could be better. You might as well say their grief could be worse.

  • If someone shares a poem with you that is meant to help close an open wound, they don't want your opinion. They want your hand on their shoulder, gripping it tight.
