Peering Into The Future - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Sadly walking down back roads, peering into forests, trying
to see between trees so closely situated together.

Taking many thoughts, attempting to picture a better time,
hopefully in another dimension far better than this one.

Tears falling haphazardly one by one, nothing mattering,
no one caring, just pools of sadness strewn throughout my

Not able to climb out of the way as grief comes constantly
washing over, peering into the future, seeing nothing
coming to light.

Yet hope still tries to shine into the darkness, no end
in sight, being abandoned, left in the cold, lonely spaces
left behind by a lost love.

Knowing that this hart has become frozen from the inside
out, now wavering, trying to hold onto this thread of mere
life, nothing much to hope for anymore.

Periodically seeing a tiny star light, then it's blacked
out by dejected aspects of loneliness, holding onto the
insides of my being forever.

Letting go seems to be an impossibility, yet I hold onto
that hope eternally.
