Grief has a way of consuming you whole

It has a way of making you lose control

It takes a hold of your heart with all its might

Never relenting with its angered bite

You have to learn to live with that ache in your heart

You have to learn that life doesn’t give you a fresh start

We are defined by the pain that we endure

It has left us all a little frighten and insecure

But the thing about grief, you know

Is that it only comes if you allow love to grow

  1. I agree that love is the way forward, but also that structuring grief through verse takes away much of its confusion and discomfort. Thanks for this.
