~ Monologue ~

by ladyliterati

 

Grief-

I know grief-

My only constant

A cloud

Shadow
Ever present

Shocked into numbness
By its arrival
Disbelief screams
From a depth
Before unknown

Denial stands astute
Face in hands shaking
Body near convulsing
Fear flecks the skin
Takes up residence within…

Alone? Am I alone?
My sense of safety
Forever silenced…

Life stuck on auto-pilot
Going round
And round, and round
Mechanical

A continuum
A vortex
The sapping of the soul –
Broken spirit

Yet in griefs wake,
Empathy
Compassion
And the ability to extend
A helping hand

As experience teaches
Lessons on acceptance
And letting go

Listen, heed
Grief, overwhelming
Can and will consume

Rise! I say
Your pain
Has a role to play!
