Write The Darkness

February 9, 2014 | 6 Comments


When grief eases into your day
As your eyes are fluttering open
And settles heavy like a fog
Over your covers and inside your brain
Write the darkness

When grief arrives as a wave
As you’re looking the other way
And leaps upon your back
Forcing your knees and face to the floor
Write the darkness

When grief takes hold like a fist
As your heart is beginning to soften
And fingers forcefully threaten
To squeeze the very life from your soul
Write the darkness

When grief is the seeming end-all
As you’re certain this time you’ll break
And all hope seems lost
To cope is to reach out and find your pen
Write the darkness, my love
Write the darkness

Write along with me!

Write along with me!

  1. OMG, how powerful and gut wrenching are your words. And how powerful the key to finding the way back from the darkness.

  2. I love this so much. Here, in a poem, is the reason I began writing, and now I can’t stop. You’ve expressed my feelings beautifully, so I know you’ve captured yours.

      Lauren, I’m so glad you like this. Grief is so hard to bear alone, and writing helps me share it, and find relief. I hope your writing helps you heal as well. XO
