Natural

The most beautiful and horrific thing about death is that it brings people 
together. 
It brings them together in ways that could not be reached 
without death. 
It gives them a reason for understanding, 
for empathy. 
It gives them a strive for comfort.

But even though it creates
love
and beauty,
death can hurt and tear people apart. 
It can create longing
and grief
and guilt
and tears that burn your eyes. 

I would like to string together beautiful words
for her,
but all that comes out
is my pain
and anger. 
Because I miss her. 
I miss her so much. 

If dying is natural,
then why does the loss hurt?
Breathing’s natural, 
but it doesn’t hurt.
