Ocean of Tears

As I sit on the edge of this king
and peruse the room; too familiar
emotional waves lap at my soul
like flames licking my tender skin

I think I can endure these days
as long as I keep the curtains drawn
preventing the view of the sea
from flooding my already drenched mind

Not sure if I belong here tonight
but then where DO I now fit in
is a thought that keeps nagging at me
causing false expectations of the future

My brain suddenly feeling swollen
with 30 odd years of processed thoughts
all colliding with one another at once
my head throbbing is all that I feel

I need to go and eat..........................

i am so glad that you have decided to write this out and share your journey thru this unbearable grief with us.. there are so many of us that are benefiting from watching the progress you make as we compare our own grief experience with yours and know that neither you nor we have to go thru this alone....

I like the last line. Because that is our basic need, no matter what..
