Sorrow


Fisted fingers swipe the tears
Darkness hides the path they make
There is no end to twisted cries
Lost inside the endless ache

Lost inside the endless ache
Thrive cliché’s intent to heal
As if to ease rage that builds
Anger feeds the need to feel

Anger feeds the need to feel
Breaking down to break apart
Frame the wound, rage serves to fill
Endless pain from broken hearts

Endless pain from broken hearts
Bridging those whose sorrow knows
Time will ease, but never mend
Open wounds where tears are stowed

You've rendered grief beautifully here and the pain is palpable. Love the repeating lines. I was here years ago and you were one of my favorites. Glad to see you are still posting!
