Heart feels as mind forgets

The pole now gone
Dark and tall once was
Night turned dawn
Found silent applause

Time elapsed
Futility backtrack
Future collapsed
Unreliant playback

Rebounding no more
Dodging the carried
No longer to soar
Foreboding and buried

Hole filled with ashes
Avoiding the pack
Time in flashes
No turning back

Darkness of cold in sight
Emptiness of space
Hit away the night
Reluctant to embrace

Missing memory stroll
Forever remembered regrets
Soil fills the whole
Heart feels as mind forgets

Four’s to two’s to three’s
Remembrance foregone
Bowing down on wounded knees
Pining and withdrawn

All forlorn
Sadness the lot
Body old worn
Eternity not easily caught

Dark turns to white
Joints growing brittle
Seeking Almighty Light
Never too much only too little

  1. This poem really moved me, I especially felt “heart feels as mind forgets” “hole filled with ashes/avoiding the pack” and the first stanza. It’s so rare to see such frank darkness, but you are rare and precious, so not surprising. Thank you for exposing this depth to light.
