WITHOUT ME- A POEM

There are things in life that words cannot heal.

broken smile

dusty veins

no man is an island

how to reach with

leaden hands

hollow arms

regret pulls in too close

can’t look away

sodden face

sightless eyes

without you, without me

too lost to stay

barren soul

hopeless breath

bring the heaviness high

no turning back

open head

empty heart

Regret (A poem)

I thought a lot

about regret

as the coffin lid lowered.

Things I hadn’t

done. More that I

had.

Life was a beautiful

mystery.

An understatement.

I didn’t get it then

still don’t.

Everyone wore black

because

isn’t that what people do?

I wore black too.

Conformist.

I longed for pink

or green

or yellow.

Yellow would be

nice.

The faces around me

were smudged

teardrops like rain.

Gray

and more gray

just like black.

Umbrellas everywhere.

I wondered

if they were really

alive.

It seemed fitting

the sun didn’t shine.

It was yellow

after all.

Too nice.

The satin felt cold or

maybe that was

me.

I thought a lot about

regret

as the coffin

lid

lowered.
