A FINAL RHYME FOR MY BELOVED

A FINAL RHYME FOR MY BELOVED

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror




One by one and side by side the pieces fell

To the deep blue sea, dying and drowning for true denial

Our Dreams, victims cheering the rip of a shot gun shell

Hope’s downward spiral now resembles a depraved wish in a well

There are no more tears, left for you here

Faith took the last flight from despair

Years I surrendered for a fraction of sunlight

Spent on the quiet madness in a dark night

The Lies you told so devotedly keep their sweet smell

Your “Truth” here has enough power for a shortcut to hell

This heart you chose to destroy so discretely

With the bloody hands you hold so neatly

Is Broken but still Beautiful, clearly

Love and hate, my essence still feels them freely

The crooked climb you made so distinctively

Dances with descent as you go steadily

This my beloved is your end completely

A fathom deep is yours to dwell and remain

Take our future with you, it's empty now like a chain

And one last gift I cannot refrain

The blame you gave, neatly wrapped in vain

Now your fall matches your climb

I will take what’s mine

Leaving you with NOTHING, exposed with one last Rhyme



Terry D’Arcy Ryan

Author's Note

TerryDarcy-Ryan   akaSheerTerror
There is no anger here, anger was last seen flying into the sunset headed for freedom. This poem is about closure. Life will go on no matter, In order to be apart of life again I had to let go of my Beloved. Years we have spent always in a struggle, at war or in Love. Our end has been a life changing loss and such as grief it moves through stages. This is the final stage. In my lifetime the only Love I have known to be truly Love. Is the unconditional Love that flows forever between a mother and her children. It has been said that it is a different love, but it is the only Love I have known that never changes. My Beloved, this poem demotes him to ex husband number three and this is a much better fit. My closure opens a new chapter and with it hopes of all things leading to my true beloved, whoever he maybe be. A chapter titled Misplaced by Destiny and looking for the Extraordinary. If you are still reading thank you and God Bless.

Pets are children - forever. Children are behind our eyes - always. So few work at their Love and so many grow apart. For some their focus IS Love but for far too many it's a "want" - attention, ownership, control, power, perceived status ...self-acceptance.

Letting go - I don't know ...we earned our nightmares - even the day-kind.

Personal writes involve deep emotions and great courage too, the way you put your feelings here is really amazing. I could feel your journey and see the change at the end..you were like Phoenix rising from the ashes, evolving with time. Yes, you are right, life goes on, so we have to move forward no matter what. I loved this, Sheer Terror.
Thanks for sharing.
I loved the title too.

Powerful use of words and thoughts.There are "no more tears, left for you here
Faith took the last flight from despair
Years I surrendered for a fraction of sunlight
Spent on the quiet madness in a dark night
The Lies you told so devotedly keep their sweet smell"

Was my pleasure and you are welcome.
I loved this nicely rhymed Poem of yours, Sheer Kind. Very poignant and powerful...strength to you and your writing. It sounded melancholic at the beginning but the way you ended it in a liberation zone is truly amazing. I enjoyed reading this one. Very well done, sheer kindness :-)
