Broken Down

Rating: 4.9
Out of my mind
Dug her up again
Her shiny coat
Pulled tight
My tears falling
Onto her perfect eyes
Please, oh please
My wails carried around
Come with me
Awaken now
My special clown

A true heart-wrenching poem that anyone can relate to that has had and loved a pet. Your poem evokes many emotions in the reader. Very well written. Ashley

Broken down, so much sadness here, the tears streaming down ones face. It is beautiful and the title drew me in, , , , , for we all feel abit broken every now and then in one way or another, but the emotion in it held me to not only read it once, but then again to see what I might have missed.....this one is a treasure. mm :)

This poem has so many different connutations, it's great writing and sparing the details enough to make us wonder. I do agree with JH here, most heartbreaking. You do write fine pieces Tailor. Great work. HG: -) xx

Tailor, this is a sublimely heartbreaking piece of work. 'Dug her up again' opens and breaks hearts. Yeah, this is as much of a heartbreaker as I've read. Anywhere. You've captured a truth about how desperate our attachments can become and laid it out so rawly and purely that we feel it competely. jim

I read that as a beloved dog and an accident of some sort... 'perfect eyes' is a lovely phrase. I think its now stuck in my subconscious and I will pull it out one day thinking its mine.

Thought wrenching, touching, pounding heartfelt words followed by the intense pain felt by the great loss of a truly special friend. Tailor you've done it again, fabulous---Melvina---

Stunning opening to a layered poem of grief and, by the use of that final word 'found'; redemption. Flows like tears, and like them, provides a sense of relief and release which lifts it above the ordinary. Beautiful. J

Tailor....a heart-touching and beautiful poem......of a child's pain and bewilderment...not wishing to accept the loss of a dear and special friend-in-fur....she waits for you across the Rainbow Bridge....to share never-ending clownful love with you....if that is what you believe.......... Love, D.
