sorry i've been writing such sad stuff lately, i'm workin' through some things apparently.

status update: i'm fine

January 27, 2021


i don’t know what to feel
since, i saw my dad cry,
or maybe that was just the remnants of fear 
drawing wrinkles in his face. 
i don’t remember ever seeing that look
or the tremor in his voice, so
did i miss it before?
is he, 
to drive his mother to the   e m e r g e n c y 
for the second time 
in two weeks.
he wrapped his arms around me at midnight and
for once, 
i felt him vulnerable and it
scared me.              because for the first time
my father was capable of true sorrow.
i didn’t fall asleep for an hour
last night. 
if this week is the time
i cry at school for the first time,
then i won’t be surprised
as i wait to see how much of my grammy will be left behind.
my grammy had another stroke last night so i had to get my feelings out in some way. i'm sorry for anyone else who's been struggling with health, whether your own or your family's or anyone else around you, it's hard. i'm doing alright, i've got friends and family around to help and such so we're going to figure it out. much love to all of you<3

    You will be in my prayers Flora. Don't worry, everything will be fine and happens for a good reason. Even if what happened was very terrible.

    all of my love, dear. i am so so sorry your family is going through this and i'm praying for her recovery - and for all of your family. i... sort of know what you mean about seeing your dad cry. my dad doesn't show his sadness, almost ever, and it's humbling when i see him cry on the rare occasions. he becomes human, in my eyes, i guess. idk, maybe that's not what you were feeling, but that's what i got from this poem.
    all of my prayers <3 <3
