Distraught Times Two

In less than a week I lost two beings from my life that I love dearly... and it is almost impossible to stop crying once I start thinking of them. So, I try to not think - just be and do what is needed to do. The first poem is about my friend:


Searching -- to make sense of it all.
Did we become too close?
Were we too much alike?
Was the honesty too intense?

Stunned -- not understanding.

Grieving -- just beginning.
Unexplained loss.

The second is about my companion and pet:


Sophie's gone.
Beckoned by the world.
Sophie's gone.
Her warmth no longer mine.

Sophie -- I'm here.
I cry out into the night
Sophie -- I'm here.
Misery is mine.
