Let Me Weep

Let me weep.jpg

 

Let me weep

Let me weep that I may be satisfied

That I may flush out this pain deep within

Deep within my heart

This pain that causes me to…ohhhh!

This pain!

Birthed from betrayal, loss and grief

Let me weep!

Let me weep and rid myself of this filth

I don’t wish to choke

I just want to purge myself of this yoke

It’s heavy and it’s…it’s heavy!

It’s been five days now

And it’s been weighing me down

I feel twenty pounds heavier

Let me weep!

Let me get rid of this yoke!

It’s heavy!

Let the dam break

Let the tears pour

Oh, let them pour!

My heart weeps

My eyes leak

Let me weep until I can weep no more

Let me weep!

SLEPT

SLEPT

 

She tore the envelope open

And she read

Suddenly the clock stopped

Everything around her felt nonexistent

She couldn’t think

All she could see was his face

Her hands went numb

As the paper fell to the ground

Memories played

Like a movie being fast-forwarded

She saw pictures of his face move quickly in her head

Her lips moved

But they made no sound

She tried to say his name

But the pain in her throat wouldn’t let her

Suddenly the morning turned to evening

The joy turned to sorrow

The smile turned to tears

Her heart broke

No!!!!!!!!!

She screamed but no sound was heard

Her face felt hot

But her fingers were cold

HOW!!!!!!

She wept!

Finally, she found her voice

She croaked his name

But no one replied

He wasn’t there with her

But she knew that he would never call her, “Nne m”

Mama

Mother

Mum

Her son had gone to bed

To never wake up again
