Elegy For Mothers Day: Beyond The Ashes - Poem by Martin Lochner

i touch your face,
feeling the uneven path
of creases

running my index finger
on suffering lines leading me
to your eyes

i feel lost in your eyes
abandoned in your weary
ocean

leaving the blazing shores
floating on sulphuric tides
we must feel pain in

ash comes from harbour side
wind still and silent the flakes
paints our faces grey

It’s a place for unresolved tears
I feel unable to propel forward
forsaking a dead embrace

you are sinking
i am drifting about
but all will drown in this weary place

you wasted us both
