Stages of Grief


While he climbed up the stairs of his bedraggled apartment

He has been devoured by a possessive ardent rage

In a split second, she was taken by an unexpected cruel fate


No way his grieving mind can process nor comprehend

How his life changed into a doleful, bewildered stage

Only lead by the unstoppable desire to release his hate


Sitting in the cold dark room in his favorite splotchy rickety chair

His veins bulged, strained  as he grasps the half-full bottle of bourbon

Overwhelmed by pain when shards  of glass are splintering in his hands


Sudden the desperation, he’s paralyzed, just sitting down and stare

How can he, oh God help me, mitigate this immense inhuman bourdon

It’s a solitary search in the desert only to find a drop of revenge
