The Aftermath (Of Your Pain)

The Moon Howls At The Wolf


A series of haikus that connect to tell a story of grief and its impact on a friendship.


"That makes me so sad.

I'm actually so sorry."

I never meant that…

-0-

I know you're upset

And the death still resonates

Deep within your heart

-0-

So I consider

That your pain is troubling you

And you are wounded

-0-

So I'm sad for you

I'll walk on eggshells for you

And we won't discuss

(Because The Pain Hurts Too Much)


Author's Note: Written September 19th after I stumbled through a conversation with a friend whose going through a hard time. Also semi-inspired by my friend's conversation with me, but a better poem will come with that scenario in mind. Hope you liked it! And please review and check out some of my other works! Thank You!
