Quiet, Grieving Ego!


Keep calm, grieving ego
You can’t contol this pain
You can’t go back, no, but
Afraid to move forward

You won’t be able to replace the loss
With blogging or working or chocolate
You can’t keep trying to recreate
Something so special
When it didn’t work the first dozen times

And you can’t pretend it never happened
Pushing it out of your mind
Like somebody else’s business

No, little ego,
You will just have to grieve
To breathe through the pain
Like childbirth
Eventually, only the love will remain
