2018 Nov. 6: Loss

We live and love in loss
 Loss is inevitable
You can’t runaway from loss
Loss is everywhere like love
You can’t love and not lose
 You can’t gain and not lose
You can’t live and not lose
Everyday there is a loss
Someone has lost
In loss
Our hearts are shattered
Our souls are broken
Our minds flock in disbelief
Pain is our norm now
In loneliness we find comfort
We live and love in loss.
 Loss is inevitable.
We can’t runaway from loss
Loss is everywhere like love
You can’t love and not lose
 You can’t gain and not lose
You can’t live and not lose
Everyday there is a loss
Someone has lost
You can’t fight the loss
You can’t confront the loss
You can’t prevent the loss
Scream
 Shout
Maybe that can ease the loss
Speak
Cry
Maybe that can ease the loss
You can’t runaway from the loss
No matter where you are
No matter who you are
Loss will catch up with you
