(Un) happy Easter


Blue sky
Sun shining
A beautiful day
I was there at the beach
Blue-green salty water
Green mountain behind me
Crisp fresh air
Nature at its best

In complete contrast to this beauty
We were all there trying to make it work
three divorced lonely adults
and a bunch of angry confused kids
Wondering why this Easter feels so weird
Roasting away our misery
Together with the easter lamb
A dysfunctional group
Wearing happy masks
Each one wrapped in our thoughts
Thought maybe we could all have a normal Easter.
Guess not.

Caught myself still thinking of you
Checking my phone for messages
But it stood there quiet.
Your memory's surely fading
But it's still there
Nagging me, making me moody
Pain in my stomach
You'll soon fade completely, I know,
Others will come to hurt me some more
Just like you did
Bravo to you for being so effective
Be proud, you really did it for me
Add this one to your life achievements
Hope you sleep well at night feeling guilty
for shattering my heart.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
