There is no face.

There is no face.

 

I sit here without a clock or time

there is no past. There is no present. There is no future.

In a moment that never happened

The numbers were washed away

The arms torn off

There is no face.

In that moment of greatest grief- That utterly terrible moment

Time not only stopped… but ceased to be

When you suffer such loss

There is no past- because you can no longer live memories without pain and loss.

There is no present- because you can no longer live in the moment without pain and loss.

And there is no future- because you will always live in pain and loss.

I can’t remember. I can’t look. I can’t hope. I can only sit here and wait.

And for you time passes unhindered

I sit with the grief of a father

that knows the pain of bereavement

And the loss of a son

And there is no face.
