Lost Souls – Poem of the Month – June 2020

Lost Souls

Only the sea
could match the anger
Only wind could
howl with more clangor
Here no one listens
and there’s no one to call
An unheard scream
goes where dead words fall
In the furor of crashing waves
drowning the agony of woes
The significance of their pain
wasted on those no one knows
Flowers waving in sympathy
as they slip to a watery grave
Where lost souls are bound
and not one person can save

    A ‘like’ seems almost disrespectful here, Christine. So much sadness…

      Thanks you. It was a little sombre wasn’t it Jude? 😕. I need to lighten up! ☺️

    Where there is dark, there is light….somewhere…just have to work for it and find it. Great poem!
