Pillowed Grief (Etheree)

Two

Pillows

Two people

One on each side

Together…. alone

Pretense of happiness

Reality hiding…. grief

Sobbing tears drench this yawning space

Clutching its’ cold inanimate form

Loving hold….fantasy fairy dreams….SOMEDAY

Relationships in difficulties take the stress to bed, and this can be the loneliest part of the sorrow.  This was an attempt to describe the sadness associated with the lonely hours at night.
