a loss so quiet – a poem

a loss so quiet – a poem

words burn
and i rush into the fiery building
hoping for survivors
longing for meaning
a miracle
a release
and there is not

one

word

inside

to assist me
wrangle emotions and fears
and a loss so quiet
expected
is still
a breaking of a soul
and the surrounding souls
we
are
left
with ashes
memories
and a loss of touch
a division with no remainder
nothing left
a perfect circle
and return
to
oneness
