    This weekend was crazy.  We moved and completely unpacked.  Whoo-hoo!  Also, I gave myself a black eye and broke my phone.  Not Whoo-hoo.  But I also had enough time to get back to my writing.  Whoo-hoo!  I'm hoping tomorrow I can post the first chapter of my new novel idea.
    Yesterday I was writing and I took a break to go on Facebook where I received some bad news.  A dear friend of mine, someone I mentioned in a previous post as one of the few people who encouraged me to write in high school, lost her husband to cancer yesterday.  It always pains me to see when bad things happen to good people, and she is the best person I know.  In honor of her, I wrote a poem.

A sharp stab of nothingness,
Empty shock.
A rush of red hot panic,
Pure fear.
A tangled mess of thoughts,
Total confusion.
A blast of painful clarity,
Bare truth.
A suffocating façade of peace,
Sheer depression.
An everlasting sting of loss,
Grievous acceptance.
