Release


In the hushed privacy of night
my heartbreak at last overflowed
bursting forth like a wild river, undammed.

Blindly I searched the sky for the Unseeable,
for a reason no God could appease me with,
each tear drop a kaleidoscope of stars,
every suppressed sob, the lash of anguish.

The universe ran down my cheeks
in a thousand shining orbs,
each one a filled with the endless space of longing
as I silently spilled out a despair
that no starry sky could ever quell, that
no flower would ever soften,
nor sunrise consume.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
