LOSS & HOPE @ataraxypoetry


Overwhelmed by past and impending

Tragedies and doom


Dread and gloom

Unsettle and grip

Tightly


Shallow breathing

Tense body


There’s so much suffering

There could be fewer dying


Continue organizing

And helping one another

Always


There is always hope

And love


Much love to all

I'm so very sorry

For loss

I wish I could fill all our empty spots

Connect our hearts and heal us

I wish I could save those in need

I wish I weren't

Feeling powerless

I offer mere words


May time give us scars

Memories

And lessons


But allow us to continue

So we may fill our hearts

With new joys

And life


Restless

Not sleeping well

With time

Life could be

Swell


Dwell

In feelings of hope

And tranquillity
