Alone - Poem by Viola Grey

Walking alone
through lifes rocky path
with nothing steady
to break my fall.
Broken on rocks
cutting the air,
bleeding on shores
never waning.
Crimson tide smiles
wash me away,
dragging my heart
into forever.

    Great pathos and melancholy in this poem Viola, heartfelt indeed.
    Hope it isn't true though!

    sorrowfully the imagery of the tragedy we sometimes face in this 'world' of ours.
    Hopefully this was a passing thing and that healing has replaced the sadness.
    You have a talent dear lady.
    Well done.

    yet it never rocks up the blue of oceanic sky
    trudging the walks even when alone
    smile still comes in its own waqy
    time when oscillates by the swing..................wonderful poem by the imagery, well penned,10+, thanks for sharing
