Ending Of My Soul (poem)

Updated on May 24, 2013

The morning music breaks the ghastly grip

Which runs along the shadows of the night

Those specters which my dying heart invite

To dance along those moments which I slip


Each teardrop flows to flame a mad delight

What once was Joy the teeth of never strip

What once was me confusion takes its nip

The moon’s sweet glow is now a blesséd blight


The promises of starlight take their toll

In dark’s domain beyond the evermore

Where I am doomed to search my pain for why


I still recall the ending of my soul

When darkness took its place there at my door

She never even said the word goodbye

      Love shouldn't be painful, but it often is.

      O, dear sweet Martin, the pain reaches out to me as I feel this sorrow. It is as if the culmination of the pain and sorrow of many have melded into this one song of sadness. Truly I do think this expresses how I felt those many many years ago when my love left...

      Sending blessings and Angels your way ps
