Grief yawns and swallows you whole.
Insomnia, heartache, regrets take their toll.
Subconscious repeatedly into past dips.
The present and future, memories eclipse.
Bitterness gurgles, brings a foul taste.
This is the hardest thing you've ever faced.
How did this happen? All seems surreal.
Numbness seeps in, you no longer feel.
Devoid of emotion, catatonic you sit.
Concentration evades you, thoughts constantly flit.
Courage within you must grasp at your heart.
Love lost, move on, now grief must depart.
