Read introduction

Grief is the uninvited guest, is he not? Never welcome and always overwhelming.

Grief.

Grief knocked on my door
and accompanies me now -
the uninvited guest.
Lost in what was
and what could be
and, to escape Grief's urgency,
in what SHOULD be.
I dare not look at him,
sitting in my favourite chair,
the incarnation of what was lost...
I avoid the sight of Grief
at almost any cost...
But he keeps creeping up on me,
opening curtains I have shut,
opening doors I rather
keep locked.
