To Meet Again


The sky hangs low with clouds dark grey
Lightning throws sparks through humid air
Heaven opens drowning all in the way
I stand beneath with no heart for feeling or despair

Pictures resonate of a night such as this when clouds lay low
My jacket across your shoulders and your hand clasped round mine
Three moons gone now oh! Where did you go?
A Shell of one so happy and humble left behind

The memories are sacred though the bond now shattered
Standing in a field watching your silhouette forever vanish
My mind like a car crash, twisted, broken and battered
The Pain haunting dreams and reality alike, never banished

Said myself when you go your spirit will always live within me
Now I cry awake, cry asleep, inconsolable and torn
You never built me a prison, but I'll never be free
Till in new life your hand is mine to hold again
And together we'll watch a new day dawn

    Thanks Robin, I did think that myself I just wanted to leave it vague so the reader could interpret it either way. You're comment is appreciated I will try to make my next one clearer! (Report) Reply

    Hi Alexis, The poem itself is quite good. Your formatting at word choices work well. The only thing I am missing is, are you writing of a dream, or was this person taken from you. That point is not clear and just a tiny bit confusing to the overall story telling. Other than that, you are off to a great start! -Robin xoxo (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
