The Greatest Grief

The Greatest Grief

written by: Arvilla Fee




an empty ribcage
with each sob,

breath catches
like legs
in brambles,

to love deeply,
even once,
and lose—

to mark a grave,
to scream,

to wake up alone,
to remember,

to name what ifs,
to want—

oh, the ache of wanting,

is perhaps
the greatest grief of all
