"Sadness"

"Sadness"

A Poem by Night

 

Sadness is a place where hearts go to cry 
A place of bitter sweet memories
where balloons don't fly. 

"Sadness is a wall between two gardens" 
A place where love 
is replaced with hardness. 

And in his eyes...a sadness you could feel 
A tear in the soul 
all to real. 

But the saddest place to me, and that will ever be... 
Is the sadness inside
 the sadness in me.

You touched a chord with this one, and then I read Kahlil Gibran, that clinched it for me. I've been reading him since I was a kid. My favorite was always, 'Speak to me of Children' of course as a rebellious teen, I used to repeat it whenever possible and it would infuriate my parents. 'Your children are not your children,
they are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself. They come through you but are not you and though they are with you, they do not belong you to. Wow, I think I still remembered it, if that's right. Anyway, back to sadness, very profound and you nailed it! Thanks for reminding me how much I love Kahlil, I need to visit him again soon. Lovely read.

Great way to utilize the quote inspired. I've not only been reading Kahil Jibran for years, but this speaks volumes to me and tugs at my heartstrings. This is poignant indeed, and I look forward to reading more of your stuff.

...very good then.:)
Of course I don't know of Kahill G. .. don't read much ..
But your words touch places of this heart ..
The heart silently weeps
When love ceases to be ..

I think we sometimes have a choice, to be happy or to let the dark creep in , and take over ....

HUGS ... Jazzy

Nice piece Night,
As it is interesting Sadness
Is coupled to love...
I wonder sometimes, could it have be otherwise...?
If there exists sadness without love,
Or that specific emphatic feeling
Is just not turn off? if you know what I mean :)
What then? could their be sadness too?
Or will it become psychiatric?

A very good piece.
