Shhhhhhhh!

Stolen souls, stories told
Stigma
Blame laying, game playing
Guilt trip.

Thoughts unhinged
Could have
Should have
Didn’t.

Teardrops of taunt
Terror
Guilt
Denial.

Numbed nothings
Some somethings
His Hysterics
Her happiness.

No rules
Just feelings
Each emotion valued
Every bereavement different.
Speak, shriek
Wallow, whisper
Release
Do anything but shhhhhhhh.
