Stumbled upon a blog from years back … Only in the Way Back Machine now.
And it’s exactly what the internet should be. Thank you person out there for writing a beautiful paragraph. I could only hope to do something close.
I miss my mom. One day, I’m told, it’ll be better. I have my doubts. I’ve been fucked by sadness before. It leaves scars.
For anyone else out there who may need it…
Grief, I’ve learned, is really love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot give. The more you loved someone, the more you grieve. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes and in that part of your chest that gets empty and hollow feeling. The happiness of love turns to sadness when unspent. Grief is just love with no place to go.
