Grief is a love language.
It is spoken from the heart
and is used to say goodbye
to lost love.
It is the first process to heal after loss.
There are many dialects
rarely do two speak the same vernacular.
For some, it overwhelms.
Its crushing force becomes their master.
Others fight it.
They must retain control even after losing.
Still some hide it.
Ashamed of displaying strong feelings.
And then there are those
who grieve over the grief they do not feel
because their love was not lost
but never was.
No grief is the same
but it is all the
language of lost love.
