Dear John

Dear John

A Poem by snopadelic
"

A poem about looking for answers

"

To John, 

With love,

by the time,

I wrote these lines

You were gone

Sang love's last song





Night out

No return

Tears rolled

Why?


The bridge

The river

Tears rolled

Why?


Your mum

Your sister

Tears rolled

Why?


Everyone looked

Lanterns reached

Tears rolled

Why?


Weeks went

Body found

Tears rolled

Why?


No answers

Just this

Why?


John

Why?

I'm not a poet lol and i'm not even going to pretend to be one. My stepbrother jumped off a bridge a year ago today, a week went by and on the day the chinese laterns went up to try and bring him home they found his body. I'v still not got my head around it so i wrote thsi for him.

I loved the flow on this piece.... I liked the divisions, it was a joy to read.

On the actually story written:
It was sad... they still don't know why. That is the reality of most situations. Something bad happens, there is no explanation and we just have to live with it. I am so glad that you ended it that way... Bravo!

You are a poet. I feel it in your words. I love the how the lines end with a question. The true markings of a poet who doesn't know it.

This is incredible. Horribly sad but still great. And it is completely tragic that people do these kinds of things and I guess a lot of the times we will never know why. Really great poem. :)

Very nice poem! I love the repeated question-why? It emphasises the meaning and enhances the beauty of the poem. Keep writing!

I think this is a beautiful poem and the questions are punched into the paper.
Demanding an answer to a question "Why?" I am sorry for your lose.

I'm a Taxi driver in a welsh town. I love Dougie Adams and most things with a vein of silliness running through them. I like horror and sci-fi but romance goes over my head. Not really sure if I be.. more..
