It snuck up on me today.
Had I really almost forgotten?
Is it possible that life seemed normal suddenly?
I almost forgot my heart, my best friend is missing from my day.
It snuck up - I remembered.
Sudden, intense, corrosive sadness.
Grief does not go away.
It hides in the quiet places that are easy to ignore for awhile.
It does not leave.
It grows in the darkness.
Steps out and bites.
