Reality of Grief

Grief doesn’t hit you properly when you’re surrounded by grievers and well-wishers. It hits you after everyone leaves when the walls echo the sound of an overbearing silence. When you touch an item that once belonged to the deceased, or find a photo that triggers a million memories that your heart can’t keep up with. It hits you when your memory rewinds to million events and life lessons that you’ve shared with that special person. That’s when the reality of the gap strikes and you slowly begin to feel the heaviness in your soul. You find yourself carrying that heavy load all the time, sometimes secretly, and you begin to think that the world is conspiring against you. After a certain length of time, nobody wants to hear from that sad event anymore. But it’s still all there in your heart, waiting to be shared along with the million memories and life lessons.
