FALLING RAIN

And so now I am alone
In the eerie silence of a life gone wrong
Shall I unpack my case
Such as it is?
All that I have is my body
Wracked with pain
But it is mine
No one can steal it from me
Like you stole my soul
I sit here in the dark
Remembering
Is it good to remember?
A line was drawn one day
When the pink blossom bloomed on the trees
And birdsong filled the air
A line which I can never cross over
Again
Never go back
On one side is health,
Busyness
Mountains to climb
On the other side is cancer
Blindness
Confinement
And you chose to abuse that
My helplessness became your fruitfulness
Such as it was
And so where are my fruits now?
Do oranges grow in the dark?
Apples tempt us?
And what of the serpent?
I lie in the dark and the silence
Hearing only the falling rain

    Oh Lisa! Thankyou so much. I am so grateful to you. Yes, it may be a bit sad, but such is life sometimes, as we both know. Much much love, and hugs to you my friend xo

  2. My first response was ‘O dear!’ Why? Because it’s a great poem: so sad, so painful, and so true that it touched my soul. Therefore I say, ‘Take heart, my friend. God loves you, so you’ll never walk alone’.
