Grief comes in many shapes and textures. There is no “one size fits all”. It changes according to the person(s) involved, the reason, the age and maturity of the griever and the depth and breadth of the opening. There is always an opening. The tunnel that was carved out as the main route of connection to the one you loved. With loss, this opening becomes the void. It is no longer filled with colorful threads of relationship to the person now gone.
What remains is an ache for the threads as they were, angel-like filaments in the now empty space. What remains is the vacant understanding that there is nothing left. Your heart mourns for the threads and cries.
