My head is screaming,

My heart is crying,

What is the meaning?

Family is family, right?

That’s what I always thought until last tonight,

the sorrow.. the pain.. show their ugly head,

they have a heart filled with lead.

I pray for you

to remember that life is precious,

that our journey will end someday too,

until then I will always love you.

    Melissa, this is beautiful and tragic and sad. That line “they have a heart filled with lead” is haunting. I’m sorry for whatever happened, and I hope you’ll find some peace. Families are hard.

    Succinct, but heartbreaking Malekka. What is it about weddings and funeral that can sometimes bring out the ugly in family. You’ve turned in the right direction – prayer. Sending you wishes of peace and that it all works out in the end.

    The line, “That’s what I always thought until last tonight,” stops the reader cold. The tension sends me reading on and hurting for the pain endured. You’ve expressed deep emotions with so few words.

    I feel the emotion in your words. I feel the strength you’ve found to rise above it. This is deep and beautiful.

    Family is family.
    That line is resonant. It could mean so many things…and yet you wrote, “right?”
    Brave writing.
