The torment of grief

This conviction of separation
that weights our thoughts
leaves us rooted in the burning,
the crucible that is being,
that is relationship;
that is ending, loss,
and mortality.
We stare ahead,
unfocused empty eyes
turned inward;
false smiles upon our faces
disguise the ache within
for what never was
and never, now, will be.
