death came knocking

death came knocking on my door
and i didn’t hear it
the music of sorrow was so loud
around me
i joined in the dance
oblivious as death crept in
and stole you away
you were so beautiful
broken in so many places
your scars were the secret of
your beauty
proudly placed on my mantelpiece
all that is left now is an ugly emptiness.

don’t offer me a new vase
don’t offer me words of comfort
she is gone. just
gone. and nothing
could ever fill this sullen
space where she used to sit.
