A Poem by ...

In mourning...

The heart moves through a tunnel

In it darkness

                   darkness

                               darkness

Like a shipwreck we die going into ourselves

As though we were d

                              r

                              o

                              w

                              n

                              I

                              n

                              g

                     inside our hearts,

as though we lived falling

                                      out of the skin into the soul


Understanding with love...

Like birth begins in a "dark tunnel", "falling"... So too do we transition beyond the flesh. Just knowing other see the pain helps ease it.
A very dear write.
You are a kind friend.

my condolences for your friend !
This poem is very good. i like the use of imagery in it. The poem is short but with the words you write it holds so much emotion. I get the feeling from reading this poem that its about mourning someone that passed away and that their heart which could mean their soul is moving through a dark tunnel to whatever destination its lies. also the last line makes me think, is it saying like your living even when the physical body dies and the soul leaves it. overall i really like this poem because it has a nice short but deep meaning that is created through your use of words and that it makes me think about things mentioned in the poem.
