Is it possible to weep without a tear,
a whimper or any other sound
and without your breath racing?
Is it possible to grieve without fear
Of everybody being around
with nobody knowing?
It happens in the blink of an eye
When your picture on the wall I pass by
I see you smiling and my heart wails



My brain doesn’t fight my heart-
it numbs the pain
Until I regain
my composure.
This is my closure-
That I’m able to sweep
it all; under a facade of calm, and not weep
without the tears falling
and anybody knowing

The reason ‘closure' is a cliche is that it is used too often, too imprecisely, and doesn't in any case reflect reality. In reality, such closure in broken friendships and much else in life is rarely achieved; only death brings closure and then not always for those still living Picture Quote #1

    1. Thank you dear Robbie for reading and sharing it. I’ve been feeling this for long and I couldn’t understand it. I’m just glad I was able to finally put what I was feeling into words.
