Love’s Millstone

Your heart is leaden,

its weight a burden

 

Your brain bleeds

from shards of hurt

 

The body drags

through the day’s wet cement

 

The flattened spirit

like sails in the doldrums

 

Loss is lugged,

hauled along dejectedly

 

Such is the impact

of a loved one’s death

(I dedicate this poem to Di Hodgens who died last Saturday)
