Another day
bleeds into night
as feelings
of despondency 
once more hang
in morbidity
a faded memory
of feelings
long forgotten
Eyes well with tears
as the heart struggles
to find it’s rhythm
Love’s death
a cross too heavy
to bear
and once more
the darkness comes

    Just wonderful. Love the amazing word flow. The first line is so much like that of ‘ Someone you loved’ by Lewis Capaldi. Heart wrenching but such honesty. Love it. Interesting blues. Peace and greetings from Sui generis 💛💛

      Thank you so much! Yes!! I just heard that song the other day for the first time and wrote down the first line because it struck a chord. I changed it a little and the rest came through. It’s funny how a few words can inspire us to write. 🥰. Thank you again ☺️

        My pleasure dearest poet. Some songs just fill you up with deep emotion. Poetry and music go hand hand in hand. I agree when you say that even a few words inspire us to write…. Please keep writing. Peace ✌️

    Wow Christine!!! I LOVE THIS!! So moving, heartfelt and bittersweet!! You so captured the feelings!! Loved these brilliant lines – “Another day
    bleeds into night” stunning!!! And – “Love’s death
    a cross too heavy
    to bear
    and once more
    the darkness comes”
    A real Masterpiece, My Dear!!! Bellissimo, Christine Bellissimo!!
