Shadows Across a Tear-Stained Floor

Shadows Across a Tear-Stained Floor

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

Shattered windows and broken doors, cast shadows across a tear-stained floor.

"




Shattered windows and broken doors,

cast shadows across a tear-stained floor.

Broken dishes speak to silent walls

while unheard words cry out

that should be understood by all.


Nothing's left to see in these eyes of mine,

because life has frozen

all I ever hoped to find.

I write and search for a stream of memories,

but find no words that won't scar me.


My hands reach out with a shaking pen

composing a message in the dark once again.

Tonight I scratch on my skin

words of love

that should have never been.

Immense wretchedness, utter sorrow, drips from every line.. so sad, so finely created. A love and emotion like this is devastating, spaces and sides with different rules -if there are any at all.. perhaps not. You've always had a poet's true reason for placing words just so.. sighhh

Is a while since you...

Ahh, the return trip from hell, that long and winding road...in darkness no less
A potent read with pain and disappointment dripping from every line. Rare when a piece gets better after starting with such an awesome opening line...the last stanza is simply amazing.
I'm a sucker for the stings of truth and emotion coursing through me via the words of others..
That said, thanks for the fix!

A realistic journey of a life in the poem.
"I write and search for a stream of memories,
but find no words that won't scar me."
Hard to forget things that scar our heart and mind. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

Such desolation and despair, quietly worded. A very sad poem. I hope it is not a mirror of where you are my friend?

Great stuff, I love the dark image it really sets the tone nicely, but I'm not a fan of different font styles

This is beautiful, but it's almost too sad to bear as well, Neva.
