It must be sad
living in a world where you are
forgotten -
in a world where
you are nothing but a
memory of
the achievements that
once defined you.

I suppose it must be lonely
trapped in a wooden box or
a small ash jar,
alongside other
soulless,
voiceless
name plates.

Wouldn't it be harrowing
to lie bare to the world:
slowly crippling
beyond the crippled,
only seeing
the tear-streaked faces
of those you love,
adorned by flowers
you will never touch?

This world of black and sadness, this harrowing loneliness -
too soon it comes for me.

Instead wear yellow, sing and dance -
while you scatter me into the sea.

    Aww thank you so much everyone, your support means a lot.

    @Rebecca de Broglio, all my love to you and your chinchilla. Remember that we can keep everything in our memories and stay strong for those we have lost. I hope you feel better soon (sorry for making you cry) <3

    My chinchilla just died, and this was the first poem I saw. You made me cry.
