The Gathering Of Grays - Poem by Jeffrey Philip Clegg

I stroll away
beneath the cobwebbed sky
having stolen your spirit
which implodes within me

I cannot leave behind
though
the shades of gray
that
when gathered together
blacken my soul
while I try to forget us
and the pain I caused.

    This is not the first time you spoke for my sad soul, I would say thanks, but I'm currently too sad. (Report)Reply

    Thinking I remember this one - from the picture right?
    Either way - it's a great poem!
