The Lonely Position of Neutral – A Rose On Hannah’s Grave – Wattpad

I stood, hands folded in front of my body, in front of Hannah’s grave. The words I love you escaped under a thought, not a feeling, but my lips remain sealed. I lowered my head and slammed my eyes shut as if to pray.

And I spoke as if she were God and could read my thoughts.

The checkmarks on Hannah’s bedposts chalk another notch under her belt of cheapshots.

The golden-brown leaves in her hair flickered under street lights.

Even in death, Hannah gambles with my heart until her eyes touch mine in a deep sleep, fluttering until my eyes slam open and like a vapor, she disappears in the wind as if her skin weren’t cold to the touch, and her eyes didn’t close as if she hadn’t died from cancer last fall.

I dream of her, but the thoughts escape my memories, and the words bring both a chill and a sarcastic grin. The taste of Hannah’s breath lingers on my tongue—even today—even in death. I kneel, dropping a red rose on her grave; the words escape my lips from under a thought, not a feeling.

Welcome to my world! We go through a lot in our lives but to accept them with an open heart and emotional strength is what keeps us alive. My posts are about all those little fears, happy moments, and anticipation we experience throughout our lives. I hope you find solace in them!
