Twilight Chasm

Twilight Chasm

A Poem by Kyari Hasutto

For a contest using the following words: solace, chasm, twilight, abhorrence, sorrow, silence, and tear. They have been italicized for emphasis.


The chasm stretches all around me

There's nowhere left to turn

Twilight falls upon me

And yet still I yearn


I shed a silent tear

For the chasm is not real

Instead it's created by sorrow

And other things I feel


Abhorrence towards him

That cost me this grief

But in that I do not find solace

I can say with some relief


Silence, or better, reticence

Reigns within this chasm of the deep

Until I learn to cope, move on

And stop worrying in my sleep


But until twilight comes unto a close

This twilight of my life

Then the darkest parts will rule

Until the sun breaks through my strife
