This is profoundly sad and composed with a dirge-like melody lamenting through every line, which is, poetically speaking, beautiful. The rhyming sequence is most elegant and fitting. The poetry of sorrow in a melancholic beauty. An excellent passage of poetic literature. Well done.
Good Sir, your work is brilliant as always. This hits home for me, seeing a good friend of mine suffer after losing her dad recently. The emotion in this has been communicated well, a signature of Mr Pickard.
First off, sorry to hear of your friend's father's passing, Maher. Never easy losing anyone close to us so I do sympathise. Secondly - and far less importantly - thank you so much for reading and sharing your thoughts.
All the best as ever.
Every time I read anything you write I drift away with the emotion, it’s like I go to a different world. I mean that in a good way!!
The poetry I’ve been reading here in P&Q this past week, is just so sad. The longing, the pain and the suffering.
This is incredibly touching. I wanted to leave a comment earlier, I just don’t know what to say!
Congrats on the win :)
