    From the rhythm in this, even more powerful when read aloud, to the tangible grief and sense of giving up... I feel so much in this. As always, you express such depth and emotion, of a soul's light fading, that last journey because the dark is too heavy, too much of a burden. When even the sun can't provide shelter in its warmth and light.

    Ah, my hear hurt reading this!

      Thanks so much,MA. To be honest, sometimes I get fed up with all these dirges I keep turning out but for some reason, I find misery so much easier to write of than any other emotion!

      Take care.

    Jeez you really have a way with words, if rhyming is meant to be a disadvantage... I've never seen it with your work.

    You always surpass yourself.

    Amazing.

      Thanks so much, Tony. Personally, I can't ever accept that rhyme is a disadvantage in poetry but I understand it isn't always well done. Glad you think mine stands up!
      Take care.
