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.

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