I live within myself
Well isn't that ironic - the #12 on the list was Sunshine's Lost & Sometimes, Found. I wrote this in response. I could have done more, but I'm just going to put this in, because it was so weird that that was the #12 poem - it hit so extremely close to home. I loved the poem Sunshine. I know my response doesn't give it justice - but it is honest.
It would be easier to mourn you if you were dead.
Easier to accept that you left.
who chooses death?
And maybe I wouldn’t feel like you didn’t care.
I want to be angry at you for being selfish,
but you’re sick… at least I think you are.
You say you are.
I want to believe that, but I want to be angry too.
I know if you returned, I’d open my arms
and welcome you back.
With no words about the years of hurt.
Because I don’t want to lose..
