grief

Grief

You have stricken me

Heavy and slow

Drowning in molasses

Feeling like my ass was just kicked

Relentlessly


Will I ever come out of this?

And be able to breathe?


Bricks on my chest

Can’t get up

Too heavy

yet

Need to move


What if I die here?

Will anyone find me here?

Does anyone even care?


Alone

Isolated

Grieving


Only I can understand what I’m leaving

Behind

It is personal

And unforgettable


Fucking get through it

You can do it


One breath at a time

One moment in time

Feeling never ending


And then,

A new beginning


Spring always comes

Even on the coldest nights


When you stop the fight

Against the grief

Is when

It passes

With ease


Like an ocean so deep

Pulling you up

To breathe


The wave swallows you whole

With no reprieve

Spitting you out

To the surface

Just when you thought

You you wouldn’t

Make it through this


And then

Ease

Breath

A lightness

Do anything but fight this


Relax

Relax

Relax

This too shall pass
