Shards of Words

Shards of Words

A Poem by RomaJ

The blank sheet of paper
lay perfectly still

There are no words to describe,
for words have no meaning,
to the words that burnt inside

emotions burn, the lead on the pencil,
yearns to dance a long its lines,
to sing sweet memories of you
that linger, on her restless mind

How she wished, she could've changed that paper.
Erased every painful line,
begin it with the sweetest words and end it with a rhyme.

but the memories cut like a razor

and the words, just shards of glass

as the tears,
bleed
down
the paper
it smeared and blurred the lines

for the words left unspoken
never saying goodbye.
The pencil she held, lie broken
like the heart that bleeds inside

and the words, just shards of glass

In her broken heart

To put down on paper all that one feels when losing someone special is near to impossible. Valentine

i remember feeling this kind of loss...and trying to write about it...often the muse gets mute...
and the feelings just bottle up....like there really are no words to describe the emotions...

this is also a beautiful poem, Roma.

Aww thank you as always for your kind words. I do hope so.
So sad, really encompasses the feeling when you're at a loss for words to describe how you're feeling inside. I feel that way often and just keep writing until something decent comes of it. I'm sorry for your loss, whomever it might have been
