Feeling Heavy today

Grief Knot

A loop of process

A loop of dismay

Crossed and tightened to bring enormous pain.

After being worn for some time,

it starts to unravel

exposing pieces of

happiness,

loosened smiles,

drops of laughter

tangled with moments of love.

Catch those strings

and put them up for later,

when they appear the sorrow

seems to brightens

for that moment.

The knot

doesn’t seem so tight.

Those are the days

we should remember .
