Solace For a Tear

Solace For a Tear

A Poem by Constance
"

This was created through a word list from a challenge here at the cafe. I tried to use each more than once. The words are: tear, silence, sorrow, chasm, solace, twilight, abhorrence. They are in italics in the poem.

"

A tear, I fall into the widening chasm of sombre twilight

Knowing abhorrence where once was tender solace

Fearing the silence wraps me- a cocoon of bleeding sorrow

How dare you say the world will change by tomorrow?

 

The sun will rise, and find that this little tear has dried

Shriveled with the first rays of light, forever silenced

Nothing left but a little salt on the cracked, barren ground

I fade out of this world of disillusion without uttering a sound

 

Will you shed a tear for me, or will there be silence still?

Will your abhorrence follow me to my twilight slumber?

I will find solace, perhaps, in knowng, the chasm in time

Will swallow you, inundate you with foul sorrow, sublime

Author's Note

Constance
I did this for a word challenge, given the following list of words: solace, twilight, sorrow, tear, chasm, silence, abhorrence. They are used more than once each, my own twist, and are italicized within the poem. I used tear and silence in all three stanzas, and every word in the first and last stanza.
The words made it HAVE to be a sad one, right?

Your words are so powerful! The images in this are really poignant. This really is a stunning poem. I loved how the first verse reflected the last. I'm so envious of your talent! Your way with words is a gift.

I write about my past, my own real experiences. Even my poetry is inspired by my life. I was, I suppose, born writing, making up stories and rhymes from about when I started to speak, but had to wait .. more..
