‘…a song of melancholy’

His life is a prison.

– His heart is caged.

A long gone lover,

– whose memory has aged.

He couldn’t hurt,

– the one he care.

Lies upon the hinges,

– hope and despair.

He could leave home,

– walk forever if he liked.

To get rid of the pain,

– and it just might.

But he couldn’t escape,

– what really hurts.

Tonight even the sky,

– was in no mood to flirt.

    The emotion in this moves the one who reads your words. Powerful! I know all about the pain you speak of. I have been doing a lot of hiking to work through that pain and to release it. Just beautiful work!! ❤

        I’ve had several losses of Loved Ones lately, Monica, and the pain of missing the physical body is intense. I’m a woman of action and so I hike, and allow the green to heal my soul and Heart. I am getting release and consciously choose to focus on beauty and not my tears. Sometimes through the tears I create Beauty. My camera in many ways is my therapist and Mother is my Healer. ❤

    Excellent imagery and what a great finish. Very clever. I could sometimes just keep on walking myself – the idea seems romantic and a little melancholy. Thanks for sharing
