Countdown

Anyone know the quickfix
      for grief?

     Anyone know any tips tricks
       besides suffering/

     Is there a self-destruct mode?

    Am I missing the button?

      Where’s mine? Can you push it?
                        Can I?

  1. This grief will become a gift from universe one day. But until then, expect to shed uncontrollable tears and bleed your soul until you get used to your body walking like a zombie (soul-less). The more quick fixes (antidepressants, therapies, sex, drugs, alcohol, you will try, the quicker you will fall in a bottomless empty space.

  3. grief is the most awful feeling in the world, I have found, after losing my father and sister both before their time. i feel your words. those have been my sentiments on many days. I’m so sorry you’re feeling this yourself. the best remedy I’ve found is shifting focus to the happiest memories you can think of. the ones that make you smile or laugh. those memories keep them alive in a small way, and make the grief a lighter burden to bear. wishing you the best 🖤

    1. I am sorry you lost both your father and your sister — how traumatic that must have been. How terrible that is. I’m sorry for you, my friend. Taking it day by day… seems to be the only route. It’s been two days. It’s still fresh. I think it’ll always be an open wound.

  4. If I knew the button to change the mode…I would tip-toe to my thoughts & explode…but sitting with grief & pain in pure silence…observing my Self as in 3rd person shooting colour violet…is the way I’ve chosen to embrace my Being in my present…translation – I love this poem of yours, Lauren…it’s so alive that I can see it right infront of my naked eyes…much love, light & pls take care, my friend ✨❤️💫

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss. Grief never gets any easier. And it never ever should. Losing your parent is such a raw heartbreaking wound that can never properly be healed over again, or become something that just passes by. We all handle grief in different ways. The deep scars we carry are proof of how much we loved them, proof that we can love deeply and live deeply and be cut or gouged, and that we can slowly heal and continue to live and love.
    At first you’re drowning, with wreckage all around you and all you can do is float. You find some cherished piece of wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it’s a memory, or a photo, or a favourite song. For a while, all you can do is float, keep treading water. The waves never stop coming, and somehow you don’t really want them to. But you’ll survive them. They’ll crash over you, but slowly get smaller. And other waves will come. And in between, you keep breathing. You’ll survive them too. Taking it slow day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute.
    Take as long as you need. We’re here if ever you need us. 🖤 🖤
