Here I stand, open to the world.

My heart bursts open

Expelling my grief,

Screaming in outrage,

‘This is unfair’

As I see the body lie beneath my gaze.

He’s gone.




Here I stand.

The only way I know.

  1. I can feel the sadness in the latter part of your story, but “My heart burst open” made me think you were going the other way. Was that intentional? Were you playing a little sleight-of-hand there?

  2. I liked it up until the last line…and then I think you completely baffled me to be honest. Very emotional and moving….your emotions raw…I get that…and I get why. If you chopped off the last line…this would and could be great, but then you wouldn’t have made word count.

  3. I like how you slide from “He’s gone” to “Here I stand” – the words you chose can describe both of you.
