The grief that lies behind the smile

Grief is insidious, it lies hidden among the notes of a song, underneath the sheaf of papers, lies waiting in dark corners, concealed behind the shelves of your cupboard. There it hibernates, making you falsely assume that you are done facing its onslaught and can smile again.

It surfaces mysteriously with a faint whiff of remembrance and anything can make it come to life. Unlike the people who move on to different realms leaving you behind, grief is forever.
