Ruins of Pain

Thursday Poets Rally Week 35 (December 16-22)

Picture for WordsWorthMillions

She dreamt of this moment
to stand and amend the past
to free herself from her pain

beholding the caved in roof
door to the past lost to time
windows forever debarred her pain

and a sadness sneaked in
unwept tears of the past flooded
her unexpressed grief

the walls had cracked with her desperation
the unmoving floor had buried her blood
the pillow had shrouded her shame

scores of years she fended her fears
and tended to her essence
the light at the end of the tunnel glowed brighter

  1. this work has some powerful images…

    courtroom and disciplinary expressions like, amend and debar. Amending the past and debarring pain.
    ANd the way you have used… roof, door and windows in one stanza to express different emotions…
    and the way “sadness sneaked in”… Eliotic.

    And then “the walls had cracked” “the unmoving floor”and “the pillow”..

    The best thing i liked about this work.. is the use of house imagery. from roofs, walls, windows, floor, doors,… and then pillows…

    to cut it short… the poem connects

  2. the light at the end of the tunnel glowed brighter … don’t loose that light amiga
    lovely write .. again

  3. Its difficult to make amends…to let go of your pain and past..but once you have taken the first step…it is assured that you are on the path of healing…great poetry…loved the connection drawn with the monumental ruins..
