Grief brings Relief

by dejohnsrld (Debbie)

Grief brings Relief
I feel the discomfort and withdraw
Telling myself I don’t care
Deliberately deceiving myself
Denying reality in an attempt
To numb the pain
The very essence of which
Does more damage
Than accepting the truth
Self-honesty allows
The grieving process
To proceed
As is appropriate
And without the harm done
By denial of true feelings


Thanks to Angelheart for the wonderful artwork
