Her Comfort


By Rio McKee

She finds comfort among the dead.

Stories untold surround her.
She whispers her secrets,
knowing they will remain so.

Lips moving silently, she mouths
the names, imagining their faces.

Peace fills her as she lays
across the tombs of the unknown.
Cover me with your presence, she sighs.

Sometimes she sleeps, for in this place
her unconscious thoughts are protected
from the torment that awaits.

These moments stay locked inside her,
for most of the living would never understand.
They provide no comfort.

Here she will walk, with fresh flowers and peace,
among those who she resolves will not be forgotten.

  1. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else
    encountering problems with your blog. It appears like some of the text in your content are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thank you


    1. Hi. I’m sorry you’re encountering this issue. This is the first we’ve heard of someone having this issue. We’re not all that tech savvy here, but we’ve sent a message to WordPress tech support asking them to look into it. Hopefully they’ll rectify it.
