Silent Forever

The silent forever has fallen again
The temple curtain torn
Death’s grief is a raging fire
That tears through our souls
Beautiful and terrifying
I can speak only in generalizations
Because this is not my loss
But I remember what happens
How the anguish takes hold
How reality melts like a painting in the sun
How moment to moment only a long wailing Why
And I will not speak of how it cleans us
But only of how loved ones linger to give comfort
In vivid technicolor dreams
