Ok, I am back where I left off with your poetry! WElcome to Soup! I enjoy reading short poems! I would never have seen that comment you replied to me if I had not come back here by mistake. A lot of poets do not see the replies, just to let you know. We have our notifications turned off. Anyway, just something I tell new poets! Have a good day!

Thank-you for your comment and question. The "black grief" is the state of the person who is calling out to his love -- for new hope, a new beginning -- to get past the grief, the darkness of these emotions -- to laughter, joy . . . completeness. Grief is not a prerequisite -- the poem describes the journey. All the best.
