LOVE AFTER LIFE?

cropped-cropped-me-and-you-m

The love remains the same…

A massive coal in the furnace of my heart,

Will it become a diamond under the pressure

Of my sorrow?

 

She occupied the whole of my life,

Either in person or as a whispered hope…

But what can I do with this love?

I cannot bring her back.

 

No I cannot bring her back to life,

Try as I might, no force of will,

Can change this reality..

And believe me I’ve tried.

 

So I am locked in this nether world,

With a heart full of love

And soul half missing,

And sack full of tears.


sorry awful doggerel,

Dale 2019.


I PUT THIS HERE TO CONTRAST WITH THE POEM I POSTED YESTERDAY. I THINK IT SHOWS THE PROGRESS I’M MAKING.

DALE ‘M’ WE WITH ‘J’

  1. I wanted to comment on this before but browser issues got in the way. It struck me that your courage in putting your feelings out there should be well rewarded, because talking about grief, though it is never easy, does a lot to ease the pain. I really wish you well and hope for better for you, Dale.
