Untitled Musings on Grief - part 1

A sonnet

By Kim LoostromPublished 11 months ago 1 min read
Top Story - March 2024

I can feel the glistening tear clinging

to the corner of my eye. A surprise

as I try to hold it back while sitting

at my desk. I continue to comprise

the email I was writing before I

was overwhelmed with memories of your

voice. It’s the feel of sun from a blue sky

but recalling this during a downpour

on a chilly autumn day. I don’t know

why I’m so overcome in this moment,

it’s been nine years and my therapy so

far has been helping with this component

of unprocessed grief. And yet, I still fear

listening to voicemails saved all these years.
