Sorrow Of A Sigh (poem)

Updated on April 18, 2015

He thought he heard the sorrow of a sigh

When challenge of adulthood struck his face

The day he wished the fairytales goodbye

-

The road to his success he would apply

All other roads from this he would displace

He thought he heard the sorrow of a sigh

-

The hours of work the limits he would try

So much this man’s compulsion would erase

The day he wished the fairytales goodbye

-

His feeling paid for things which went awry

Till from the emptiness which filled the space

He thought he heard the sorrow of a sigh

-

At last he climbed his mountain to a sky

Where cloud of sweat have hidden every trace

The day he wished the fairytales goodbye

-

Now in his castle lifeless doomed to lie

There from a window filled with moonlit grace

He thought he heard the sorrow of a sigh

The day he wished the fairytales goodbye

      I imagine he was hearing the sorrow of his own sighs because he'd wished (and succeeded) the fairy tales away. Sad.

      This is a lovely poem. Sad, indeed, but lovely. I like the rhyme scheme and the gentleness I feel with this poem. Job well done. :)
