People say over time that it gets easier.

That the pain will go away

And bad memories will fade.

Positive moments placed on picture paper should be able to suffice.

I think, over time, people just get better at distracting themselves.

Moments of happiness erase feelings of sadness and mourning.

When the topic does emerge,

Even sometimes, years later,

The lump in their throat is just as big as it was before.

It just gets a little easier to swallow.

Just like it’s easier to swallow your food when it comes in smaller bites.

I’ve never heard of anyone choking on peas.
