A Single Tear

A Single Tear

A Poem by wordman
"

"

It seems i have fallen from your grace

i no longer see your face

so i sit to write but the words wont come

 

Tears roll down my face

it seems i have fallen from your grace

down trodden and all alone

no one to call upon

 

A deaf ear has now taken the place

of my God and his grace

though i walk through the valley of death

i do fear evil i feel alone my heart cold

and out of place

 

On my knees

on my face

praying to God to once

more show me his face

 

But not a sound

do i hear

only feel the warmth

of a single tear...

Thanks for sharing your spiritual side. I think many people can identify wih this piece. We all have those times when we feel disconnected and it is a lonely, barren place to be. Your words describe it very well. Nice work! I did want to mention in the second stanza, correction in the last line-should be "call upon", not "call up on."

The loneliness we experience can certainly be a place where we feel as though we have a complete disconnect. I can certainly relate to this one.

thank you julie
I actually really enjoyed you poems, loneliness is something that is easy to hide and I think you wrote the poem with a such a passion for God, we all get lost at times, there are many questions we will never know about God but what we do know is he loves us and even when there is silence he is there watching over us.

thank you for the visit
The sting of loneliness can be one of the worst things of all. I noticed that you wrote it "god" not God. The way you write it is important, because lower case is usually a god like a pagan god or something are worshipping and treating like a god that is not a god. Upper case means God as in the God. This is well written and tragic. I appreciated the religious part of it. It made ponder on my own faith.

Heartfelt and so emotional, feeling as thou God has turned his back on you. And you are aching for him to speak to you again.
