Anticipatory Grief

by June 4, 2021 0 comments

You have learned
there is a word
for this

mourning someone
who is not yet
dead

liminal space
between hope
and letting go

lingering
at the threshold
of loss

no-man’s land
you must cross
on your own

afraid
to reach
the other side

editors note:

To see it coming stings no less. (We welcome Agnes to our crazy congress of Contributing Poets with this submission. Read more of her madness on her new page – check it out.) – mh clay
