...Pockets of Dust...

Updated on September 11, 2012

Sorrowful pockets

hold rivulets of Time

and dust

Silver dollar teardrops

razor edged words

never spoken

the sharpest

and the littlest things

become

the biggest

and shame besets you

trees begin to scold you

and the wind

howls your name

How did I ever

lose you?

    Wow !!!!

    OK not sure how to comment on this one but going to try :)

    Such an amazing way to express the sorrow and regret of a love lost, being hounded and ridiculed by the elements that is genius !!!

    I have to say one of the most clever and beautiful writes I have ever read

    Exalt !!!!
