The Cloud (poem)

Updated on July 23, 2013

He wanders through the cost of his mistake

The mist with which tomorrow is endowed

The veils of reasons to his present shroud

A path the stars in heaven do forsake


His hopelessness is captured in a cloud

Which steals the tears a broken soul may make

Each one a promise never meant to break

A promise meets the fields of disavowed


They gathered there to share is his regret

The answer to his sorrow and his pain


They talked of times they never will forget

But why he left this no one could explain


And as they said goodbye and sun did set

A lonely cloud released its telling rain

Music onely

      Martin, this such a melancholy poem of memories and sorrow -- yet the love still is there in the heart. Beautiful.

      Martin, this one is getting voted up and shared for sure. The clouds can cover us from the face of the sun, they can hide us in oblivion, and they can bring a storm upon you. Poetic brilliance!
