The death of a loved one

In freewrite, poetry on December 4, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Where are the black veils?
Where are the torn cloths?
Why aren’t the streets hushed?
Why aren’t the stores closed?

Why are the ashes swept up
Into our hearts to hide?
Are we really too fragile to break a little
When a part of us dies?
