Deepest condolences that surface
from unbearable departures 
that skeletons hang in balance over dried rose petals
we commence in dark shadows 
over our demise
that once we capture hearts and
kissed wounds that left us melting
in corners 
revealing secrets
while playing in time
i was lifted
and communicating in vials
that sealed my fate to the
fixing empty plates 
working several jobs to keep floating
when forgetting that i was in mist of transformation
when acting new was normal
and old behaviors seem foreign 
secrets are testimonial stories 
you tell the public to seem heroic
forgetting me 
that mixing business with creativity
seems understandable to walk away from 
I and We
