Grey

Heartbroken, she now forever resigned

For alas her sorrow had come to stay

No bells were tolling, no telling signs

No hooting owl on that bitter cold day,

When a fragile heart stopped and the world went grey


She walks at night praying to see his face in the pale moon

And looks for his brilliant eyes in the tempestuous sea,

But he’s not there she’s bereft, for he left gone all too soon

And she, once vibrant is now cursed to forever be

A specter of a woman haunted, yearning to be free

  1. How sad that the sorrow has come to stay. The ending line says it all: A specter of a woman haunted, yearning to be free. Thanks for joining us Linda. Your poem is part of Mr. Linky 🙂
