Dark, Dark, Dark - Poem by Shirley Hanley

Uneasy darkness envelopes me.

Blinding moments
of mood disorient
this creature of melancholy.

A great saddness
my constant
My family is
moving away.

They haven't left yet,
but oh they are going...
yes, they are going,
far away,
far away.

An uneasy foreboding
catches me unawares,
a premonition of tenebrous days ahead...
Questions thrown
to the ether...
Will I see you again?
Will fate take me away
before we can reunite?

A great saddess yes indeed,
yes indeed...

Dark, dark, dark...

    Haven't been on poemhunter in a while. Glad to see your fine poetry is still here. Some Englishman once wrote 'Parting such sweet sorrow.' I hope yours has some 'sweet' to it. One of our sons moved away years ago. I was sad at the time. May not be like your parting. He and his family are only four hours away.
    Merry Chrismas, Tom
