In Which I Write A Poem of Questionable Quality. (Also, it’s sad.)

Have I mourned enough to fill this void with tears?
I haven’t cried much so I don’t think so.
Have I honored your memory like you’d want me to?
I’ve stopped thinking, so no.
Did I acknowledge the anniversary of your death?
I’ve blocked all thoughts of you so I don’t think so.
Have I continued my work to make you proud?
The words won’t flow, so no.
I can’t write. (I try.)
Writing opens wounds I’d rather keep closed.
I can’t cry. (I don’t try.)
I need to keep it closed.
I can’t indulge in sorrow, that’s a door I’d rather keep closed.
(If I don’t knock there’s still a chance you’ll answer, as long as the door stays closed.)
