Grief

Grief

grief is like driving
over the speed limit
in total darkness
and people around
are yelling at you
for goin’ the wrong
direction,  you went
there anyway
‘cos you wanna
be over driving
not seeing the light
then boom!
you hit the wrong spot
before you knew it
people who loves you
are now the ones grieving.

you’re off to some place
where grief is no longer
present.

P.S.

this photo felt like grief for me. it gave me a strong overwhelming emotion of sadness.

    The last stanza reflects the truth. There is no grief or pain in that space.
