Grief today

is not like yesterday’s;

today it’s a ball, lodged deep in the throat,

instead of yesterday’s hovering cloud.

Tomorrow grief may be rain washing away every thought,

or the laughter of melancholy memories or perhaps

I won’t be able to keep tears at bay.

It’s impossible to say.

Grief is complicated,

that way.
