Emotional Scavenger


And now in the cold light of day,
Grief casts her shadows long,
and grey
Draining warmth & blinding me
To the glorious hope
Of day;
Grief would steal my soul and hide it
In blackness,
Whispering reminders
Of pain,
And loss,
And death…
Mocking hope's insistence,
Spurning love's comfort;
Grief watches,
Expectant, she waits…
Grief, scavenger of emotions,
Is ever hopeful.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was inspired by loss.. after the death of a loved one, there is generally a period of 'shock' that shields us from the long term reality of loss. Once that shock wears off, the reality of grief sets in, & it's a long hard road to travel...
