Grief and suffering

I can be
A Life sentence to many

Because . . .

The more you love me
The more 
I will hurt you in return

I can take away your daylight
Engulf you mind
At night-time

I’m a dark cloud looming
Suffocating
Intoxicating
stealing your happiness

But you can’t lock me away
Not even gain revenge,
I am invisible to nature
A black hole curator

I’m a dark time capsule
Which many will enter

Some, visit me briefly
Others, well
They may never leave

Only you can decide
On the burden
Of which I thrive!

The grave battle with sombre!

However. . . 

This is a journey
Which, for many
Look back with pride

A voyage,
Resilience,
Acceptance,
Rest the storm!

The gales finally settle!

The sky is finally blue!

The warmth of the sun . . .

Peace rekindled!
	
Grief has finally capsized

A personal suffering
Of the worthwhile journey 
Embarked

To have loved so deeply
Sorrow is a privilege
Of the soul
To which we now depart
