Stories Never Written - Poem by Eric Cockrell

he leaves behind
..a stack of

young
...pregnant
.......girls
........having
.........babies....

mere echoes of
his unconscious self,
crying out his name....

against the rage
that lingers where
his heart should be....

feeding the hunger
that
..devours
.....him
...... .from
.........within!

books unopened,
stories never written!

    Can it be about someone who's dream it was to study and go far in life? But instead had babies, a family life, and no progression? (Report) Reply
