Emotional Clothes

| By Marjorie Morgan

Grief often slips

between the stitches

and becomes a

second skin

for an eternity.

Comfort hugs tightly

like a baby swaddled

in a purple blanket

whilst a parent is absent

or gone … for good.

Love is loose and free

with room to breathe

and dance in all corners

of every room

like a free-wheeling ballerina

floating on

an invisible permanent smile.

Layers upon layers

of emotional clothes

worn around hearts

and sometimes seen

on bodies

when the light shines right.
