Rumor - Poem by Jessica Amburgey

It's that moment when there is nothing left.
It's the day when they all forget.
It's the hour a heart stops beating.
It's that second of deep regret.

It's that bond that reaches so deeply.
It's the tie that will not break.
It's the soul that's holding on.
It's the memory you can't shake.

It's that loss of innocence.
It's the hidden truth amongst the lies.
It's the whisper of the silent.
It's that mystery behind the eyes.

It's that love long forgotten.
It's the recollection of the old.
It's the hand that's always reaching.
It's that truth that's never told.

    Good to know that a poem sent to PH six years ago has been chosen as the Member
    contribution of the day. This is the rumour I like, it gives me hope! This poem is rather
    conventional in form and prosody for my search of the modern in contemporary writing.
    But I applaud it too.

    Well written, although I would echo what K.C. Ford said.
    Congratulations on having it chosen as member poem of the day!

    I like what you've expressed in the poem. The repetition of (It's) put me off a little, but thanks for the read, Jessica. (Report) Reply
