my grandfather died on a normal day,
alone, as expected. his funeral
was held in silence. i vaguely remember
the flat where he’d lived, alone.
if i had played there, i don’t remember.
i do remember my parents tearing
down wallpaper, as wrinkled as he was,
and the stale, ghostly smell of cigarettes,
and the low ceiling that bled yellow. they
emptied his drawers, cupboards, bedtable—
then stopped, silently. child as i was, i
saw them find something, hidden beneath socks.
then my father, who i did not see cry…
man as i am, i cannot remember.
as you've noticed, friend, i haven't submitted anything for a very, very long while. mainly down to university pressures, relationships, laziness, an attempt at a journalism career— and, of course, a lack of self-confidence. can we be a writers— in fact, anything— without doubting ourselves first?

i hope to submit one poem a week from now on. similar sonnets-but-not-really as this one (which is about my reclusive grandfather and his relationship with his son/my dad). the intention is to create a larger anthology of poetry for my uni course, due march next year. this will be about 40 poems— all for free— available on both dA and in other formats. your feedback and support in this endeavour, friend, is, as ever, of great importance to me— when is it not?
