Flames


As the tears stream down my face,
I blame only you for my pain.
My mind and my heart can only now
race,
About my loss but your gain
In my never ending chase
For love, for hope, for fun
For purpose in these ever long days
I see my dream and I think of you.
I rip it to pieces but save the lace
I start a fire as you did in my soul
The embers fly away with every last
tear
The walls burn down around me fast
but slow
My heart beats quickly as you scream
to me, ‘no’.
You broke me then, you shall never
again
I fall to the floor and turn to thin dust
You run now away from my grave
Where I will forever remember your
name

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
