The Dogma of Grief

The Dogma of Grief


Grief prevents momentum

And sadness sustains limbo

Seconds become days

With relentless stagnation

Fate playing tricks

In ways unforeseen

As calendars remain

Fostering the season

Lessening reality

In intangible ways

That heightens the dogma

Of grief
