The spiral of grief

The grieving process may not have an endpoint,
a goal line, or state of completion
in which we come to some final resolution,
where we've "finished" and land
in some untouchable place,
free from falling apart
and breaking into pieces yet again.

While we may generate
a fantasied end state
as a targeted objective,
the heart is endless and grief may be a companion
for the duration of a life.

It is not so much a process
as a non-linear, unfolding partner.
It moves not by way of straight line,

but by that of circle and spiral.
