Odyssey Of Ages (Part 2) Tragedy - Poem by Anthony Dover

Happens so quick,
Fate gives you the flick,
Visa withdrawn,
And angels mourn.

The thinking too much,
The missed bus,
The breakdown of transport,
The negative thoughts.

The blood on the pavement,
The city shadows,
The conspiracy to steal,
My beloved home.

The sudden realisation,
Of love's aspersion,
The broken roof,
And sordid squalor.

The darkness encelopes,
The mind stops to develop,
The loss of destination,
The dark sides intervention.

The ultimate betrayal,
Friends start to fail,
The eternal consequences,
the dream sequences.

The nearness of death,
The fall from grace,
The two lost years
Of homelessness.

The bitter anguish,
The cry of defeat,
The sky rent asunder,
And being pulled under.

The sorrow by the sea,
The pain in me,
The broken heart,
And the dark, the dark...

    Yeah, what we think might sometimes drive the pain away, it has a tendency to turn around and swallow us whole. Bad news all around. I think everyone in this day and age, has had those days. God Bless, catie :) (Report)Reply
