‘Closure’ and ‘Hope’ — two poems

Closure

Universally sought after
Arduous to achieve.



Grief’s heavy air envelops the survivors.
Morning time elastic
The absent member relationship
Continuous on within us.

Broken sleep
Time slippage
Sluggish movements
Pain and sorrow need to congeal.

The urge to snuff out the flickering process
Is a temptation to be resisted

True closure’s reward
The pain for having loved.


Hope

Cannot be commanded
Demanded or ordered.

Without it
Time is a melted watch
Conversations static
Plans unactivated
Utterances slow paced
Pleasure thoughts and feelings punctured.

Small daily successes
And unexpected outcomes
Hope bursts forth from within
Renewed yet unearned
Is still a mystery.
