A Little Too Late

Her life was like a room without a window,
those ‘rainy day’ eyes,
could have formed a deep river,
but no ship sailed upon it,
to carry me to her

and I would have kissed away every tear.

Misplaced, I could feel her yearning,
for love, she had never known,
confused and lost, but her silence,
left her trapped in burdensome meadows,
and I wonder if I could have shown her the way.

From the silent screams of her tongue,
I could feel the pain of her spirit,
feel the lacerations piercing her heart.
If only my words could have soothed her,

but even they could not save her.
As the lights dimmed,
silent stars became the nature of my poetry,
I asked the moon why?
but clouds covered his expression.

Now my mind is a time machine
of her memories, her voice still haunts,
as I ponder if the thunder will persist,
because I’m too afraid to close my eyes.

  1. OMG! 😞 This is so hurting. Blend of nature with painful emotions huh, I really love this one. The metaphors are so striking. Every stanza is a poem in its own!
    This took my heart away, “silent stars became the nature of my poetry,”. Just wowwwww! β™₯
    Thunder doesn’t stay for long, huh. Bright sun will shine soon. Keep the faith. πŸ€—
