Grief that weighs like a stone.

Grief that weighs like a stone.

A Poem by Timagination

Image result for crows in a cemetery

million times I've shed my tears
For still, her touch I miss.
Without her death, we could have lived
Unbridled in our bliss.

Our future lives were sold to grief,
I'm hostage now to pain.
That jocund voice no longer sings,
My pleas, I cry in vain.

My fingers arc with shaky hands
The letters on her stone.
I'm puzzled why we both exist
Dissected and alone.

For I, with time, shall never rest,
Nor ever feel complete.
Until that day at rapture's gate
When once again we meet.

I loved this clever poem, I enjoyed the words you used as they seem to be of older time period, it is so sad that no matter how many millions of tears we cry, we cannot bring our loved one back, well done this is truly touching :)

Thank you KT.
Monumentally emotional write. When a loved one is gone, we visit the grave and see the cold stone while remembering the warmth and the love. Nice to believe you will be reunited someday.....it keeps you going. Beautifully written. The rhythm and rhyme are super. Lydi**

This is beautiful. Losing someone you love is very hard to bounce back from and everyday living is spent grateful that you're one day closer to being with them.

............... :D
I think I have read your works before... I often read in silence without commenting. I think you're really good at structure and creating rhymes. It reads very smoothly although I have to admit I'm not overly into your choice of words for I am more into pieces which read a tad more contemporary or modern. Your words read a lot like ones from past times, even centuries, which is a nice way to write and it requires skill you obviously have yet also always a question of personal taste. All in all, a very well penned poem.

What do you mean a attitude? I'm confused.
Powerfully and poetically expressed. The sadness shines with a heavy beauty.
