when the blue bells chime

~

when the blue bells ring
i feel it in my heart
the chimes of sadness
defiantely breaking the silence that hangs

    like a head bowed in prayer
filtering whispers of mourning
that worm through my ears
tangling
tangling my thoughts into a ball of cold flesh 
that curls up like an unborn fetus 
  lying on a cold bloody concrete floor

abandoned in the place
     where death was birthed
in a world gone cold 
defiant and bold
their melancholy chimes
and the gears that grind in painful rotation
moving lifeless through the motions of time

they chime, the blue bells
and i feel it in my heart
the motion
     (a painful throb)
as memories grind

wow Ana, this poem, these words you left the sound of blue bells chiming in my ears, my head and my heart..... how can I make them stop??? your poem is going to be with me a long time.... if I had read this 3 years ago, I'd still be hearing them ring... Lydi said it when she said "raw emotion sprawled on the page... and yes, I loo love it....

Thanks Curt. I appreciate that very much!
Hemingway story made the bells chime seem lonely and sad. Your words did also. A sad journey in words and thoughts in the amazing poetry dear Ana.

You are welcome Ana.
Down and dirty raw emotions sprawled on the page...the scattered rhyming is so effective. A psychological beauty of a write. I liked it.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate the great comment Lydi!
tangling my thoughts into a ball of cold flesh
that curls up like an aborted fetus on a cold bloody ...

I feel it in my heart
the motion
a painful throb
as memories grind
grind

Wow these words paint gruesome photo of the feeling of pain and depression...
