Something wicked our way came
There is a wickedness and cruelty beyond words that continues to plague this family in the name of “love”. A world torn asunder has been further trashed in a most wickedly cold cruel way ……
There are quotes from other writers that play over and over in my mind in the past 3 days
Shakespeare and a witch stirring at her cauldron….. Macbeth
“By the pricking of my thumbs- something wicked this way comes..”
or perhaps John Paul Sartre from No Exit a play I performed with good friends – Dave – Caron and Casey in happier times
“Hell is other people”……….
Both quotes are quite appropriate this day – our journey has had another wickedness come our way and the hell we are now experiencing is directly due to “other people” – those that profess to love ………..
I have seen first hand what happens when someone you love ,a grieving father becomes “choked with emotion” upon hearing the news that promises made have been rescinded.
I have seen through my own flood of tears what happens to the already frail persona of a grandmother – her heart already broken now shattered by a cruel denial and thoughtlessness to those that were waiting closure in the name of love and honor
This latest blow to us has no honoring of my son and a selfish love at best-
“The love that grew with us from our cradles never knew diminution from time or distance ,
Other ties were formed, but they did not supercede or weaken this .
Death tore away at all that was mortal and perishable but this he could not sunder”
