It’s brazened and extremely evil  

The way grief creeps into our lives

Only to extinguish love before us

It’s terrifying- losing a loved one

Knowing within our broken hearts

There’s really nothing we can do

Nothing within our fixed power

To undo, the vast wreckage we feel

In our minds, souls, or lost words

We gag and choke on its sour truth

Longing to save a part of our heart                     

Because we’re lesser- without them

Guilt yokes us in an apathetic fashion

Adding to our raw bleeding… wounds
