She saw her life unravelling
Important bits were falling off
What she saw yesterday as whole and complete
Was today collapsing before her eyes.
It’s what happens when sadness descends upon you.
She saw so much had changed
The love she knew she felt
The affection she gave and received
Was once again replaced by pretend
Once sadness descended upon her.
Get on and live your life were words she heard
Over and over repeated you’re better off here.
The humdrum and chaos of a live not lived at all
The expectation you were present when you weren’t
Was what happened when sadness descended on you.
She gathered what was left
What hadn’t disappeared into the air
Held each thread as if to let go
Would allow her soul to wither and die.
For sadness had descended upon her.
