Christian, A Poem About Grief

I would like to welcome the newest member of our writing team, Froggy. In her first post with us, she shares her feelings about the loss of her beloved dog. Thanks for sharing with us, Froggy!

While I was in residential treatment for self harm, my dog and lifelong friend and brother died. He was very sick and had to be put down so he wouldn’t suffer anymore. My family is still shaken up.

love.

what a concept.

but the day you died,

you tore my heart and stomped it.

 

not a goodbye,

or a last word spoken.

now my heart,

is irrevocably broken.

 

my words alone,

can’t possibly show my love,

or my heart ache,

when will i cry enough?

 

you were there,

through the suicide attempts.

you’re the best friend,

i could ever have dreamt.

 

now you’re gone,

and my heart breaks.

my love was clear to see,

my affection opaque.

 

this afternoon,

i cried for hours.

it felt like my heart,

has been devoured.

 

my brother says,

you’re always with us,

but for my grieving heart,

that just isn’t enough.
