What a Shame

What a Shame

A Poem by Sectando

Author's Note

Sectando
Yes, that is me in the photo. For those who can not read the photo here is the text:

What a shame.
I have no eyes, no sight to gain.
This darkness seems a bit unfair
to show me things that are not there.

For the one I long to see the most
A love now gone is but a ghost.

I have no eyes, no sight to gain
no beating heart...oh, what a shame.

This is so sad, missing a love lost can bring me to tears.

I agree with Pryde...the brevity really works here.
and the rhyme feels natural...often rhyme feels forced.

often what we see in darkness is more than what we see in light.

I understand that kind of reaction to life and how it grabs us by the throat at times. Been there. Been there a few times.

Many kind of blindness. Your description is darker than most. You left the reader with sad place and little hope. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry. I like the honest and directness of this poem.
