The Spirit of Grief

From the corner of my eye 
I watch her stare blankly at the computer screen 
she is so full of emotion and truth 
so busy fighting back tears 
that she can barely sit still 
I turn to face her 
that I might reach out to her 
but something is holding back my arms 
something keeps me silent and still 
it is the spirit of grief 
asking me to wait my turn.
