Losing Them

by Gwenyth Hill   Oct 6, 2017


See here this man, for he is upset
See the pain hidden within his regret
For he was a man with a love at his side
Swept away from him by the coming tide

His love was strong and bold as brass
But now nothing good can ever come to pass
For he is shattered and lost and struggles in vain
His love is gone, there is none to reclaim

For he is bent and broken in will
The world will go on, but to him it stands still
Caught up in the time when they were together
When the world was a whole lot better

When the universe shone bright
With an unearthly light
When he was loved and in care
Now he is taken within his despair

His rage and anger cannot be quelled
His loneliness is an unending spell
He has fallen from this world
For it has taken his precious pearl

No longer can he smile in glee
Or take part in the beauty everyone else can see
He is withdrawn and wistful
Wishing for the time when he was once blissful

    A story well told within some very accomplished rhyming, which you clearly have a knack for.

    Take care,

    Wow, Gwen. This one's rhyming is really seamless. I want to nominate this too but I have run out of nominations! Great work, I thoroughly enjoyed the read.

    Sad theme, but the way you wrote, it sounds beautiful.
    Full 10 for the rhythm, emotions, structure everything.
