Another letter to the dearly departed:

Faded photographs 
And smiles cemented in my mind 
Are not nearly enough 
And not nearly the same 
As it was like 
To hear you laugh 
To hear the rumble of joy in your belly 
To smell the food in your kitchen 
The memories are not nearly enough 
But they are all I have 

    -arieana, grieving in public instead of pretending I don’t
