Wow, this is really powerful. I noticed the word "closure" somewhere in the jumble of comments, and this piece is all about not having any. the 2nd and 3rd stanzas are definitely my favorite.. I don't know what else to add. There's something about this piece that hits something inside of me, makes me cringe and feel almost nauseous. I don't know if it's from relating with the piece, or fear of it perhaps, but it strikes an uneasy chord with me, and that intrigues me. Good write.
