Grief hides pain behind a veil of anger, rage, and disbelief. And yet, it consumes your every moment and every thought. Inside, you want to lash out at the world, viciously, violently, anything, to send the hurt back! Grief clings to death and in so doing, devastates the living. Your world shrinks to memories, reflected in pools of tears. And life loses its spark, for the part of you, you’re missing, has left a hole in your heart. Time is but a concept of the mind, as flimsy as a thought it has no power over pain. And yet, there is something stronger than time that can numb pain, and that is hope... fueled by love.

Very well said Yes, time does easy the pain, then anger tends to leave also an imprint because they are gone. Emile, congratulations on POTD. Hugs Eve

Poignant and pensive - a wonderful overarching exploration of grief all wrapped up in your vivid imagery and wise perceptions. The last stage of grief is acceptance which leaves hope "fueled by love" in the wake of tears. Wonderfully done my friend. Congratulations on your well deserved POTD!

Talk about poetry straight from the heart - the overwhelming pain of loss - ameliorated only in the very last line by hope. A wonderful write. Best wishes Bill
