Having Been Destroyed In The Womb

No chance Ella’s grey hair
ever can be covered with dye
nor love be found

    Kinda sounds like my life...(all the men seem to run away) ..lol,
    but I do hope at 52, I will not be submerged in so much loneliness. I see this character as a person who is just trying to have the life they had wanted, and life sucks the percentage of that opportunity each day. Very sad, but brings light in the happiness a simple gesture can bring.

    Sometimes life
    challenges belief
    reality overwhelming faith
    or hope
    at least for a moment
    leaving only a
    taste of ashes.
    A fine poem
    exploring the underbelly
    of belief.

    This is beautifully written, read itself
    down the page, so smooth.
    I loved the end 'until a ton of earth
    suffocates the pain'
    Wish i had written that!
    Kindest Regards Slim. x.

    A sad tale...with an ending that tears away the veil of suffering. perhaps death is the answer to the problem of life...enlightenment a farce here on Earth, in these bodies.

    the opening 4 lines are a fantastic intro. they seemed a bit different from your normal voice.
