That in this world there is an empty space,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Underneath the weight of knowledge  learned
I seem to be reduced  and paralysed
For I had thought the painful loss would turn
And fill me with  his love unpetrified.

For a moment, we may often ask
When sudden shock invades the human heart
But “give me years” makes tangible the task
The grieving  must not end before it starts

That in this world there is an empty space,
Never to be filled but lived beside
Makes some  feel rage;afflicted by disgrace
Makes the themes  of grief and  pain elide.

I feel inert like marble on a beach
Light and absence will my sad heart  breach..
