    at least it rhymes!

    " Jeremiad
    A jeremiad is a long literary work, usually in prose, but sometimes in verse, in which the author bitterly laments the state of society and its morals in a serious tone of sustained invective, and always contains a prophecy of society's imminent downfall." and other meanings.

    Only two lines, such a depression, and so much sadness and sorrow, the two good lines are enough to touch the heart of a reader.

    Here you have spoken for every sensitive soul, acutely aware of the harshness of life. But be sure whatever comes from the depth of soul, however sad, sounds like a song to those who understand the language of love.

    'Only the Jeremiad of the soul' - lamentation so powerfully crafted in just two lines.
    Wonderfully expressed the 'angst' of a sorrowful soul.....10

    A philosophical write! I found a little difficulties in making out the content but as you have written it you must have thought in a specific angle! Thanks for sharing my friend....10

    A very clever use of the word jeremiad in a very short poem, thereby opening up a whole universe of lament for what possibly ails your soul or morals without openly confessing them.

    Kostas, again, I am hoping this poem is in the vein of your imagination, and nothing more, as it isn't consistent with other poems you have written that I've read. I hope all is well in Athens. Dennis

    It's quite simple. I take the person I was, in a difficult situation of the past, I'm bringing me into the present and I leave the poem open to future sorrows as they come and go...

    Dennis Ryan(3/13/2019 10:11:00 AM)

    This poem, based on memories, as you say, is nevertheless disconcerting because it is written in the present tense and alludes to future action, not past action. As Dillip K Swain suggests, it would be informative if you explained your thinking, your angle of thought that led to the writing of this poem. Best, Dennis

    It's not just imagination...Many poems are coming from my memories.

    A powerful, poignant and thought provoking short write
    that vividly paints sorrow due to bitterness.
