You left me feeling breathless, drained and weary
I felt alone, emotional and teary

You touched my heart in a way I've never been touched before
You left me wondering why and wanting to know more

Like why did this have to happen and what it must have been like
Not knowing what was ahead in the sea that dreadful night

Frightened, frantic, desperate they all must have felt
When on sighting the water rising and the danger this would have spelt

All the passengers what they must have been feeling on that fateful night
The agony the worry of their dreadful plight

The fear must have been horrendous knowing the ship was going down
And that almost certainly they would surely drown

Many would soon know that they would not survive
Others would be thankfull that they were still alive

To the one's that perished on that fateful ship
Prayers and thoughts survivors could only give

And those who did miraculously survive how brave and couragous thay must have been
they would have certainly been wondering why about the disaster they had seen

I was inspired to write this after I had been to the picture's to see the movie titanic with my daughter in 1998. It was a very moving and emotional picture knowing that it really happened and that so many lives were lost unnecessarily and in such tragic and hopeless circumstances.

Tracie~
I like this and can understand what prompted you to write it.  Here's one I posted in Open #4 ... hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed yours.

Titanic Lovers
~Marge Tindal~

Sailing to
eternity
lost
and tossed
upon
the sea

Sightless lovers
dance no more
entombed
instead
on
oceans
floor

'neath
the
cover of
the sea
Titanic lovers
melody

plays
oh,
so
hauntingly

Oh Marge I do like...It's perfect, written so wonderfully as usual. Thanks for sharing it with me, I wasn't around for that one I've only been here a short while, so once again thanks and I'm glad you liked mine.

Tracie,

Yes it had that effect on me to, the love story added a sense of intrigue that binds us all.

Tracie~
I kind of figured you'd like it.
Thanks for reminding me of the Titanic.
I didn't go see the movie as it was just too tragic a story for me to watch.

You put your pen on the pulse of the tragedy.
Good job.

Wonderful poem.  I can't imagine what must have went through the minds of the people on that ship.  The vast array of emotions.  Excellent tribute, Tracie.

Paul no movie has ever left me feeling the way I felt upon leaving the cinema after watching that movie and I don't think I will ever feel that again.  
Marge thanks once again

Ruth can't wait to read your poem (Titanic) thanks for reading mine
