A Thousand

A Thousand

A Poem by Poetic Beauty

Droplets of liquid salt
Tear stained, ink filled paper
Melting by each sentence

Smeared with emotions
And forfeited exiled dreams
Hidden within true words

A thousand tears have been shed
A thousand shards scattered
A thousand miles shredded

Journal lines blurred
Ink, blotted out of existence
Thoughts turned sorrowful

Phrases slowly disperse
Fervor washed in reality
Belief choked in truth

A thousand tears have been shed
A thousand shards scattered
A thousand miles shredded

Forest turned to sand
Desert scorches the green grass
River of hope; barren

Inkwell burnt and fried
Charred in the Arizona sun
Evaporating words

A thousand tears have been shed
A thousand shards scattered
A thousand miles shredded

Very contemplative and sad. A story to be told to the ages under the hot Arizona sun. A distant recollection to be cherished in every detail. Thank you for sharing...:)....................

O! Brother! I find a bit of my own history in this ... the fervor of love washed in reality, the thousand miles between, the reality of betrayal choking you like a vine. When your heart is open and pure with one who is deceitful and manipulative, this can only portend disaster for the most innocent and trusting of the two. A snake has no snare equal to one such as this. Well done.
