I watched in ignorance the remains go by
I tried to draw a bridge, a canal, a little door
then napped in the arms of surrender, as I
lost the battle, the gift to dream furthermore.

All reveries fled their parchment sky
fled the folds and patterns of my soul.
Some wept; some claimed the flair to die
as I stripped off my faith in the lavish shoal.

Living in atoms and dots invisible to the eye
almost certain that sadness is the ultimate war
I shall carry the heavy debts I bear, I deny,
unfold the other side and smile no more, no more.

    Rania, is on fire with her poetry and this week, she proves to us yet again, just how powerful she is!

    Sadness is a barrier that will unfold like a demon and consume the person... this is what I took from this poem and it truly is an elegant creative side and way to look at sadness.

    Just wonderful!!
