Blank Canvas

Blank Canvas

I cry a thousand tears
Into the night
My heart as heavy
as the darkness
The sadness
of losing your love
brings such sorrow 
leaving the sky starless
 
Like a death 
I must mourn
Grief overwhelms
and I see no escape
The hurt is intolerable
but deep down I know
in time there will
be a new landscape
 
With tomorrow comes
morning light
and clearing of clouds
Signaling expectation
The canvas is blank
White and pristine 
waiting for my
new coloration

and what it means to us.

    A sad poem but ending on an optimistic note.

    Your poem rings true, for a love lost, and in time the bell rings again… I’m send my friends this incredible new video of Leonard Cohen’s brilliant poem, “Happens to The Heart”…. I think you enjoy this…….xxx
