to the wildlife we have destroyed 

Though your presence

May have left

I will try my best

To keep your memory 

Alive

 

Telling stories of 

How you 

Lived 

in the Forest 

Ocean 

Home. 

Your beautiful fur, or

Mighty Tusks,

How fast you sprinted,

Or surfed through water

Spirited and Free.

~

 

I’m trying to imagine

Someone Else 

Armed with Power

Larger and Stronger

Invading my house with

Their Belongings 

 

Until there is no space for me 

to Breathe. 

 

Inhale Smoke,

Plastic,

Chemicals

and

Choke on memories of what was once mine. 

 

I thought Warmth was

Loving, 

Like when you are with family near

A Fireplace

Or when someone hugs you and 

You can feel their

Body Heat

 

But 

Too much of anything is

Destructive.

What can I do to

Undo

And Love

You.
