Open link time again at both Real Toads and d’Verse Poets.  Sometimes, I wish I didn’t have the real-life inspirations that come into my world.   Sadly, we are saying farewell to a friend, one who left this world way too soon and way too suddenly.


Robot-walking through the day.
eyes not focusing on the task.
Instead ice turned inward,
freezing my unfeeling heart,
numb from trying to deny
that one phone call can
change my world drastically–
hEaRt AtTaCk.
free from failings.
Troubles of the world stay behind,
where we toil without you;
life made a bit tougher
without your sweet smile.
Can’t stop thinking of you.
Your family and loved ones
robot walking through the day.

  1. Teresa, I’m so sorry for your loss. Condolences to the family and friends. I’ve had so much loss the last couple of years, that I thought I was numb to the pain…but, of course, you never are. I know they are in a far better place and that brings some comfort. The memories, too, though hard to bear now do become salve to a broken heart.

  2. … numbness. and then all the emotions pour fourth. Take a deep breath and allow it all to happen. The beauty is one day you will smile fondly and feel your heart swell – and know love is the proof that life is eternal. That’s what I have learned.

  3. Heartbreaking, the loss … one telephone call altering everything you thought you knew. Beautifully composed ………..
