Grief - A Poem



It grips your heart with its iron fist

And squeezes out every drop of love

That once coursed through your body;

Every ounce of joy you once felt;

Every moment of peace you once had.


It reaches into the very depths of your soul

And tears out the life you once lived,

Replacing it with hopelessness and despair


It blinds you with hatred and rage;

Knocks you to your knees, and

Sucks the very breath from your lungs,

Leaving you begging for the grave

Very emotional poem of feelings deep inside. Takes much courage to share with others.

I think the best things come from the depths of the soul, laid out in the open for all to see.

miss jkim yes, when others are willing to share more, it makes it easier for the rest of us to share too.
