Bitterness…

In the distant sky brooding

clouds roll, like boulders

between our souls, mine

trapped in human form;

yours in heaven gracefully

adorned.

A tear, a prayer, is that your

light flickering from afar, my

eyes are dim I can no longer

cry; still I cannot say good-bye.

I had no power to save you,

weakness lies within me,

bitterness follows me in my

dreams; nothing will ever be

the same, nothing is truly, as

it seems.

  1. This is a really powerful poem which, I feel, truly captures both the sense of loss and our inability to accept it. I always like the way you manage to convey sentiment without becoming sentimental, and I admire the way in which you choose to structure your writing.
    Take care, Chris

  2. Today I truly wish you that you will feel better. Overcome that that does not seem to be endurable. Just because I am in a mood where nobody should suffer. Sorry for my bad English.
