A Passage Through Grief

by cassie hughes   Nov 2, 2021


Today is monochromatic
and shrouded in mist I am
unwilling to pierce.
In pieces scattered to howling
winds memories ebb and swell
as grief overwhelms.
Time flows past yet I am still.
Today solitariness drives.

Tomorrow?
Tomorrow’s sun will gently
dissipate the mist to
usher clarity once more.
Resolution will descend unhurriedly,
aggregating recollections
to disperse sorrow.
Tomorrow company draws.

    The writer created a deep sense of obscurity in life and the future. The gloom in the first stanza was done extremely well. I loved how the last stanza hinted at hope.
