(Please note that this is an on-going work, any comments and/or suggestions be greatly appriciated...many thank yous)


The Weeping of Sorrow (part 1 of the tale "Sorrow")

Sorrow weeps ageless tears
Throughout her timeless years
as she wanders endlessly
veiled in silent fears.
Tattered wings of tissue paper,
skin of alabaster
and hollow eyes of gray.
She remains tangled in the knowing
that many will foolishly call her name.


Sorrows Mind (part 11 of the tale "Sorrow" the tale)

Loneliness slides down the walls
as a whisper from her fridged lips falls.
Emptiness fills grand mansions of the mind
and caresses the skin with slices harshly unkind.
Caring freezes itself in motionless time
only to mock existence as a skeletal faced mime.
Longing drowns in a vast red flood
of callous and calculating icy blood.
Ponderence upon your question of how she feels
reveals only that Sorrow knows to be the depth of what is real.


Sorrow Feels (part 111 of the tale "Sorrow")


Pain and longing heartlessly embedded within
her empty shell of beautiful skin
as her never-ending journey tears gapping holes
in her ever weakening soul.
Sew it shut with golden thread
only to observe, with momentary trepidation,
the loving stitches shed.
Escaping into the catacombs of malicious vindication
when Sorrow spews self-inflicted deterioration.  



"There is an alter ego which
dwells in every soul..."
a-alibaster

"I am as I am, nothing more, nothing less,
I am tears of pain, tears of Death.

I enjoyed this.  Self infliction though? Or did someone else cause her the pain???

I thank you both and am glad that you enjoyed so far.
Isis, yes self inflicted is what I ment but fear that I am in need of a better way to state it then the line that I came up with...will have to work on that a bit. Thank you for questioning it though, I too found to read a bit odd!
Until...ali

For All is beaten into I
only with the permission
of the Eyes commanding

Sorrow Filled Indeed


The Song That Is Soul
It Reaches Defiant
Giving It In And Given
Calling All Souls Rise

A tale of sorrow, indeed, ripe with regrets and pain. I like your style of writing, will be reading much more.

With the word, I am mighty, with the pen I am free..
