...... A Woman Is Crying

A WOMAN IS CRYING

In the next room
a woman is crying

a moon
perches upon an hotel sign

unmoved

as a new millennium
dawns

as bright as neon

the woman
still crying

her unknown
despair

shifting silently
from one century to another

human grief
unchanged

from age
to age.

A woman is crying.

    Simplicity in language is strength best proved in poetry as demonstrated here. Powerful!

    I love the simplicity and yet the cleverness of getting the point across with such a punch.

    Grief...love...loss...all these the common things of mankind. We may be different in race, religion, creed, whatever, but common to us all is the heartbreak of 'a woman crying.' Lost, alone, lonely, heartbroken...matters not...just the grief.
