Guest post // at the open grave – by Michael 

My latest collaboration with Ana! 😁

@ bittersweet diary


Let it out, you can’t hold it together.

Not now, at the open grave:

Where the vulture diggers are hungry

For another body

Stacking them high

Sprinkle dirt, flick holy water,

Tread carefully…collapse into a family member

Who hugs you too tightly, but right now

It feels right, or real.

The rain plays with us

Like a fickle child

And I am suddenly drained

Nothing touches me,

There are only lurching stomach pains

And no more sandwiches left when we arrive

I just wanted a drink, to try and help.

It doesn’t

They dug a grave in my heart today

And it stings.
