grief

it's a time where

people hurt the most

they can hide this pain

so no one even knows what's happening 

 

it can be easy

to fall into a hole 

where everything is dark

and those people who hurt you

are your only company 

 

it can feel as if

the world stopped

like you're falling...and always 

hitting the ground

 

the only thing that you can do...is cry

let out all your feelings 

even if no one is there to help you

help yourself

 

because once you've finally hit the ground

there's only one way to go

go...
