I Thought Like Fools Do in Grief

I Thought Like Fools Do in Grief

A Poem by Blue

It did not rain that fateful day
Your love was like the sun at noon
But without warning, all was dark
The sky turned starless, midnight soon.


I thought like fools do in grief:
"If day is short, then midnight's brief."


To bed I went with hopes of dawn
I lulled my pain, regrets to sleep
Forever passed and night stayed on
The sky's still starless, black, and deep.


I thought like fools do in grief:
"If love is short, then sorrow's brief."

This is excellent. So heartbreaking and true and so well put in such a few simple words. Well done indeed.

In faith, dear poet, your rhymes are gold!
Your imagery and flow are bold!
You have the will, the skill, the thrill–
A true magician with the quill!!

Well done!

I can't quite tell if I have chills or I'm about to cry. Your form is stellar and the substance is so powerful and true it hurts.
