Grief Slalom


The onslaught is repentless

From the moment I wake up

Is it the grief

The hormones

Or the trauma?

Am I sad, mad or afraid?

I'm tired

from all the tension

From the crying

From the pain

From the vague vision in front of me

This long and winding road

From all the grief that came before

And that which will follow


I think


I’ll just keep sleeping.
