Lady Of Sorrow - Poem by Terry Biscamp

Where you going to go now,
Lady of sorrow.
Living your life,
Dreaming of tomorrow.

With your head in the clouds,
Facing an unknown direction.
And really all you want
Is to know a little affection.

Didn’t your tears slow,
And your smile return?
Though you hide it well,
I see in your eyes they still burn.

An empty stare to the sky,
Watching, listening….waiting.
For anything to end her sorrow.
She sits, anticipating.

No flowers in her view,
But the thorns dig in her skin.
And she screams in her mind,
Holding herself within.

How long will it go on,
Lady of sorrow?
Before you take control of your life,
With no voice to borrow.

So what are you to do,
You can’t give up hope for a better day.
I know the pain you feel,
How badly you wish it away.

And I know what you’re thinking,
But you must force that out of your mind.
For your sorrow will only remain…
While your soul drifts, lost in time.

What is your wager,
Dear Lady of sorrow.
Do you have enough vigor,
To relive it all again tomorrow?
