Bitter Past (poem)

Updated on August 31, 2016

My bitter past comes back to me

Across the tears which formed a sea

Whose waves would shape a destiny

Of all that I have come to be

-

The dreams which used to keep me warm

Have drifted off and lost their form

Lost loneliness is now the norm

And run away from every storm

-

But there she was in front of me

Al I desired had taken form

Her happiness was now my norm

As by her side I’ll always be

-

We built a home and kept it warm

At sunset stroll a lovers’ sea

Such Joy had kissed our density

How could we see approaching storm

-

For tortured times which use to be

Forged murder in my destiny

Her blood became my endless sea

My bitter past comes back to me

Music only

      this one certainly makes the reader think. So many questions come to mind; the biggest being did he kill her?

      So well written, it evokes the darkness of past sins catching up with the present.
