"Mourning", A poem about A Loss, a Grief, A journey by itself to gain inner strength by the powerful spirit

Updated on July 23, 2013
Mourning... | Source


Pain pain pain that is all I feel again and again.

Lost in the sea of emptiness knowing that I can't shower him with hugs and kisses,

Feeling dark hollowness and missing the warmth of our cuddles,

Streaks of salted fluid running down as motion ever so continuous.

Oh god still the pain, bitter crushing pain, again and again.

Sitting inside,

by my bedside

I found memoirs that breezes into my heart,

stinging and stabbing memories probing at me back,

mocking and failing in my want of burying it deep inside.

Looking outside

I see life brimming every where, all the side

but how can I explain,

that nothing I can see is making me feel alive...

It is just simple and plain,

I can only feel pain and only pain, again and again

My heart breaks again when I remember,

You lying peacefully on the pyre

eyes closed,

lips parched

skin clear

near yet so far from here,

somewhere deep into nowhere...

Oh my lord why you want him more than me?

Why you love him more than me?

Why oh why you became so needy?

your need and want led you to tear him away from me?

Why oh why,

just answer me!

Why oh why now you are sitting silently?

Why oh why

now when I close my eyes

I can feel hate only...sigh, hate only.

People say that time heals the pain away,

but I can't even give time a day

because for me the hours are like years

minutes are more than months

and I don't even want to say what the seconds are for me today.

It is a long way for me to walk ahead,

filled with our memories together we had made.

Memories brimming with happiness and smiles,

the thought of it brings, oh brings again

Pain and only pain....again and again...

But one day I am sure I will be alright.

One day I know I will learn to live without you beside,

one day I will smile and be happy like I was before, from inside...

Till that day ......I will bear this pain, this crushing, stabbing, pain , again and again...

      This is such an important and deeply written poem. I know all too well the emotion we struggle with when losing a dear loved one and I thank you for putting so eloquently into words my thoughts and feelings.

      I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure he is happy wherever he is.

      Coming back to the poem, I have never personally felt this emotion in my life, yet. It is always challenging for a writer to write something that they have never been through and I prefer that way (mostly).

      Thank you for empathizing with this poem.

      Thank you for commenting for my poem.

      No, it is not a true story. I feel as a writer, it is easy to write what we all go through in our personal lives, but it is really difficult to put oneself in another's shoes and write something that might be totally alien to self. I prefer writing like that. Its challenging. Here the concept of the poem is also something I have never been through in my life, so far.

      I know, I gave a detailed explanation here!

      well thanks again.

      This was wonderful and emotional you expressed yourself well.

      May God comfort your heart it isn't easy to lose love ones. My brother died 12 years ago and i still miss him and cry for him sometimes.

      My love for him is undying and hope to meet him again by God's grace over on the other side.

      Take courage

      @Kathryn L Hill Thanks a lot for that lovely comment of yours. Also I have to mention one more thing. This work of mine was tough for me to express as I have Never gone through this phase in my life Ever, so far. But glad I could evoke the feeling of bereavement in you via my poem, and that is my whole aim.

      This is a touching poem and of course should be allowed to be seen. Is it now? Looks like it. I also think you could put it to music. Sorry for your loss. And I think your ending thoughts are right.
