After the Beautiful Life


 
After the life that left its wake,
the dust, the wasting flesh and fritter,

deadly calm drifts down
where the wars of words and wisdom,
pleas for strength, have powered up 
but failed to thrive.

I'm getting beyond the facts and figurines
of beautiful life that ended horribly wrong, 
settling down like dust she breathed,
like ten thousand tiny things she kept.

Her life is making its way through bags
and flowers, dishes and drawers, all the
compartments of quiet I could hope to find,
still empty from a life that bore my birth.

After the life of beauty, full of empty space,
come memories I try to make more room for

in my
totally shattered heart.
