Shocking Loss


A mere breath: Life


Martin is dead

Is what they just said



My eyes drip wet

As I struggle to picture him stuffed in a wooden casket



They murdered him cold

It mattered not that his baby was just a few months old



Martin dead?
The very thought makes my eye red!

Openly grieving. Well expressed.

This makes such a powerful, sad and honest statement about the utter loss that death brings. Good work on a tragic isssue.
