Poem: Grief

By: Nadia Rei Maglonso

Deny what is reality
Block out words and hide from facts —
The first wave of pain.

I blamed you for leaving
Resented you for my pain —
I needed closure.

Sometimes I regret
Not having enough time
to talk more with you.

I long for acceptance
No one seemed to understand
How your loss affected me.
