Poetry: Gone

Updated on October 2, 2013

The weathered cracks stretch across the dark wall

in a spider web pattern. The hard wood floors are

cold and the mirrors covered in dust. Two cats painted

different colors cross each other, dancing while

they await their owners return. A young couple walks

down the path holding hands and laughing…

enjoying the comforts of one another. I tread along alone.

Looking up at the dark starless sky, I wonder where they have all gone…

and if I could go with them.

      Thank you, guys. It's nice to see my emotions are coming across to others easily. I think poetry is meant to inspire and connect with others on a level they may not understand. @Sheilanewton I always try to put beautiful pictures with my work that I feel reflect at least some aspect of my writing. I'm just glad that others like them as well :)

      The poetry is awe-inspiring. And Franz Marc's cat drawing is absolutely out of this world. you make a good choice of images to go with this splendid peice of writing. Well done
