Poem #13


Alone I can't mend my broken heart
Without hope, how can I even start?
When all I have is this dark and gray
A lingering shadow in my way

    Yes Olumide, I have heard.: P
    But sometimes the soul must express it's deepest sadness and let out it's most depressing words. Lol. Because we are poets, we must. Don't worry too much about me, I bounce back to normalcy sooner or later. (Report) Reply

    Have you heard about taking it one day at a time? Have u heard that darkness never outlasts light? Have u heard that u are only a mirror of what u see? (Report) Reply

    But you're not alone... and the shadows are just a distraction, zig-zag between dispair and hope...
    within your words, are the passages of hope. Poem #13 is a raw and naked look at your emotions and your broken heart... but between the lines is what I see... words that heal, passages that reach out to that desperation within us that strive for us never to give up hope. Very heartfelt Write Angel.; -) Kelly. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
