the rolling waves of sorrow





each raindrop from heaven
that falls reflects
the tears i feel in my heart
on bended knees
i beg a reprieve
from the onslaught they impart

and the winds that rage
and howl through the trees
bring sorrow in rolling waves
while sharpened edges
of the sword
the grief in my soul engraves

  4. sometimes i wonder if you are really feeling this way ... and as i believe on your work ...i get concerned and sad for your heart Shadow ...
    the fact you write so perfectly with so much feelings doesn't take fron my chest the fact that you deserve to feel much better and i can't do nothing for you...what a situaion !!
    as i was in the situation of this poem and felt this now inside my veins , i don't feel sorrow anymore... i feel love ...
    thanks for sharing your feelings in a so magic way . every word fron you seems to be a masterpiece .

  9. Shadow- so much for loving storms and waves. Hmph! See, this is why we must embrace the thunder; so that it might be friendlier. Still, a beautiful beatdown it was. ~rick

  11. Shadow, get yourself to a sunny place, quickly. You need a good soaking in Vitamin D.

    Strong poem. Got me thinking.

  18. I'm new to your blog and I came to know about you from Fireblossom at Wordgarden. And she's very much right in describing you as good with poetry.

    "bring sorrow in rolling waves
    while sharpened edges
    of the sword
    the grief in my soul engraves"

    I loved these lines. Very graphical!

  19. Uh oh, engraved grief sound permanent. Or am I reading too much into it.

  22. beautifully written, though i do hope the feelings are memories and the sorrow has washed away on the tides...

  23. It's a job to be more expressive than that picture, but you managed it. Nice work. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I try to imagine what's going on in your mind when you write such emotionally charged words.

    Hope you are just greatly creative and not feeling in the way your poem depicts, if you get my meaning.

  25. A heart broken in pain and sorrow. Sadness lurking everywhere. With this I can identify...

    Shadow...SO Neat-O!

    PEACE!

  30. G'day Shadow.
    Hope your Monday has been treating you well...

    ...to answer your question you left in my comments, I responded ---

    Shadow In the Constitution, there is a thing called impeachment [voting them OUT after serving only part of their elected term in office]. It's a strong motion, and it has come to reality....but it would take a LOT of mistakes. As I have said today, work with them...if all else fails, IMPEACH ---not use a gun as depicted in the political cartoon.

  31. I hate it when the sword gets even sharper with each swipe at the heart.
    It is the stony heart that dulls it which is the dilemma. I'd rather a heart soft and malleable, despite the scarring, than one only good for breaking windows.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is excellent, Shadow...I am not kidding, I hope you a book together soon! :)

  33. I'm grateful for not having raging winds and a lot of rolling waves of sorrow this weekend.

  34. Howzit Shadow? I have missed you so much while away on vacation. It's been lovely to have the time to catch up on your beautiful work. I miss RSA so much and you always make me feel just a little bit closer. May God bless you sunshine.

  35. How strange that sadness for me is helped by words of deep sorrow. You wonderful poem spoke well to my heart. With thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I can feel your pain Shadow, the waves will find there way back to calmer seas.

    I hope the sorrowful penning is a metaphoric evidence of your talents in your writings and not a painful ordeal that you are going through.

    Thank you so much for your appreciated comment on mine.

    Peace and hugs my friend...

  37. For over 2 months I've been reading your poems.

    I read it, close my eyes and re-read it.

    When I open my eyes, the whole world seems so different.

    Every single time.

    Speechless. Awesome.

    Fantabulous.

  38. Those rolling waves are romantic looking, and sounding, like a tide of orgasms.
