to a past that cannot be forgotten


to a future that will never be seen


to things which should be tossed away


to a dream that will never come true


to people who leave hurt in their path


to people who never return


to one breath, one step, one day at a time…


to grief

to hurt

to hope

to faith

to love

always clinging

always clinging in one way or another…

    So much to cling to that it weights you down, hopefully someday you can let some of it go.

    I am glad that you can cling to hope, faith, and love my friend. I believe in you and your strength. You will be able to move forward when you are ready and those who love you will help you get there.

    Needing or wanting and loving somebody is not clinging. But it is if one cannot move on.

      I agree. Thank you for your words.

        I missed your poetry. I love your words.

    Just last night I was conversing with myself about this clinging…

      And what did you conclude?

        Some of what I had scribbled that night,
        ‘My fingers slipped – my hands let go – because they’re feeble. But my heart is holding ever so strong.’
        Clearly my heart insists on making a case…

    So powerfully written Kim — [hugs] — I wish I knew what to say to make it easier.
