Poem – “Trapped in Yearning” – Romance – 9/3/2020

Glistening fog
About your wrists,
With gestures towards the paint upon walls,
With stillness to your face,
As you laid in the grave.
For as your fingers point to the earthen sides,
My eyes shower your cheeks.
As you lay there to be covered
By the damp debris,
I am here to read aloud the night
In my palms.

Your world
Is regrettably dead
Beneath all the smog and the hues,
Beneath the radiance of the sun,
Among the wicked blues.

Without grace,
You show no trace
To lift yourself
From where you lay there
Beneath my despair.

Shrouds me,
As peace
Laces you, in defeat.
Darkness is a puddle
For me to soak my arms,
My legs.
To kiss the sky when I cry
That my tears might float upward
To where you will reside,
No longer at my side.

      1. My one and only novel had the protagonist as an anti-hero.

        I tend to involve a lot of “self-destruction” of main characters into my books or poetry, only for there to be not a good ending, but a revelation for them.

        I don’t know what that says about me, as the poet/writer. πŸ˜€

      2. I think characters who struggle are more interesting to write, something to sink your teeth into, and we are all a mixture of light and dark after all.
