Memories - Poem by Marie Chapple

Life gone forever leaves me cold
Stone heart, fearful of love
Why did you leave?

Come back and hold me close, rock me as you once did
His heart was broken too
Falling still, into your empty grave, I cling to this earth

Blackness all around
Keeping me prisoner, hating self
Since lessons learned without you were lessons learned in pain

We loved you so.

    That a poem bit fragmented as i felt as emotions moves up and down. But the subject but so strong that it should have made me cry but it turn out to be whisker.But still a great try.

    Keep writing
