RIP

The death of a true friend always hurts
The tears dry, with the chilling ice of frosted years.
It slaps you in the face,
The truths of the many nevers to come.
Never see that smile again,
Never hear that laugh
Never hold that hand that held you through

The death of a loved one never dies
It lives on,
Lingering in the shadows of your mind.
A constant reminder of the dark lonely days to come.
Changed dreams, the paths of your nightmares cross your fantasies
Jabbed in the way are new memories made.

The end of love never fades
When the one, is the none,
One can never see another.
Walk back to the times hand in hand
And the sweet memories awaken the bitter realities

Nothing hurts like losing you.
My friend
My family
My love.
The hardest thing, is the best for me
Keep living without you.

You forgot me.
Easy
Too easy to have been love

Greatest Men

Few of them walk the earth
Heads held right,
Many strutted across the country
Deluded by the size of their nothingness
What makes a great man?

Some are the first to rule,
With the same fist many before them have,
They dwell in a shell painted with the chocolatey goodness
None of the ghosts before wore.

Some were the only ones to bear
The labours women do
Pushing through to bless with life
They have changed the life gifted to them

Others were the first to place their foot
Where no man was created,
Nor placed by Him
A place that supports none of His form, breath nor image

Some were born in a skin they shed
To die in one they bought
Others lost their freedom
To liberate their nation.

What makes a great man?
Innumerable qualities define him as great,
If you see
the way he shows the meaning of his love.
You would agree.
