It takes you to the past
forgetting the present

It makes you relive the happy moments
or creates repeated sad moments

It makes you wish everything was different
or you could turn back the hands of time

It makes you wail uncontrollably
or go completely mute

It makes you see life anew
and enjoy every moment all through

It’s grief and it’s different for me and you.

  1. I hate grief,
    I hate heartache,
    I hate wishing you will call,
    I hate what ifs,
    I hate you have this effect on me,
    I hope I don’t hate you
