The weight of Grief

by Michelle DaPonte Saslow

October 8, 2021

Author: Michelle DaPonte Saslow

The weight of grief made me collapse.

My legs could no longer carry the weight of my broken heart.

Screams vibrated in my being as I slid down the wall to the floor.

My chest too heavy to take a breath.

The unthinkable…..

You are gone
