Grief by Charl Landsberg

Charl Landsberg | May 21st, 2019 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

Grief:
a breathless thief.
A fist around the heart,
forbidding relief.
Grief:
dances in a grey veil,
of dull midwinter mornings,
to cull hours,
and days,
to experience loss,
in a myriad of ways.
Grief:
a careless ghoul,
of constant persistence.
Grief:
again. Again.
We never get used to loss.
We never get used to loss.
