Stained - Poem by Leah Rochelle

She looked out into the night
She cluctched her chest
Everything was starting to consume her
Possessing her every being

Her sobs came silently
While her heart was screaming
All the love she ever knew
Gone

As if a doll
She sat there crying
Shaking from the inside
Knowing that even if it all returned
Her porcelein face would be stained
Forever

    Poet captured all vital moves of the loser, just like the way a camera captures an object, to tell the story naturally and sensationally. This is the cleverness of the LR has exhibited. Wonderful. LR deserves full marks Congrats for being he members PoD. (Report)Reply

    She is waiting at the window expecting that her love would return. But the scar is there that will remain for forever. Sad and true. Very nice poem and congrats. (Report)Reply

    Very well articulated poem. The pain of a broken heart nicely portrayed. Even if there is re-union, it will never be the same- stains will remain. Thanks for sharing the poem.
    While her heart was screaming / All the love she ever knew
    Gone.... As if a doll / She sat there crying

    You've captured and wrote beautifully what losing something very dear, that you hold on too like a treasure - precious piece of jewellery suddenly is gone. Yes even though it comes back you're not the same. I liked it very much not because it resonates with me but in the way abled to express yourself in so many little words. Well done, you.
