Carry -5-1- Around

Carry -5-1- Around


With a first name ending with an e, it sounded like something very Frenchie, it sounded pretty

I could have bet that you would quickly become the teacher’s pet, but for some reasons I did not get, soon we had to organize a lifeless fête

It was sometimes harrowingly atrocious other times just plain nauseous, so imagine If I had been famous

What would have they said in the press if they had found out one day that I was sibling less

In social interviews, always there has been a question I have dreaded, how do you eloquently disclose that your sister is dead

It does intrigue me much, that the older I get, I very often blow a gasket because of the space you take

Little I knew that sometimes I would have to fake, little I knew that sometimes I would have to swallow a whole piece of bitter cake

It’s like living with a constant foot on the brakes, it’s like thinking we never got to share mummy’s pancakes

The ball of grief has had more than one rebound and I accept it is perhaps not a new truth found

Because as cliché as it is bound to sound, deep down

I am still carrying you around




To S.D

jumping with grief before the score? This is such a unique expression for a character. Your buzzes actually teach me a lot about defining a character

The ball of grief has had more than one rebound and it perhaps is not a new truth found. Grief does bounce around. I love this one
