Title: soot-stained
Written February 16, 2017


It aches
continually
My body
My heart
My soul
so tired
I trudge on

I wish it were over
but time alone heals
so they say
This too shall pass
so they say
Trudging,
I hold on

Dreaming
asleep or awake?
Yes
always yes
Minutes days weeks
Months are gone
but it feels like just yesterday—

Time heals
Hurt fades
Memory softens
Soon again my soul will sing—
everyone says

Hope is all I have now
Hope that they are right
and this too will pass
This will pass
Asleep or awake it all feels the same
but it will pass

I trudge
I crawl
I weep
—I hope

—I hope—

Trudging,
I hold on
—Hoping
I hold on

Aww babes, hold on. It's horrible to lose a furry friend and it's horrible feeling so low, but you will get better. I lost one of my kitty babies and I was heartbroken for months and months, but I was able to be happy again eventually.

It's not just Gus, though he's a large part of it; it's the fact that I was actually happy, and that my home is now gone, and nothing is ever going to be the same.

Having lost so many I love in the last couple of years, all I can really offer is BIG HUGS and my sincere condolences, my dear friend, but -- If your words are true, at least you are still managing to hold on to your hope. There are times I still don't feel that myself, but when I do have hope, when we survivors have hope, it does make it all a little easier. <3
