Click here to hear the poem read aloud:

my sorrow widens like a river in torment
as it flows under a bridge of my tears
and sighs like the wind in the darkness
dispensing the seeds of my fears

deep waters crash upwards in confusion
dragged screaming in dread from the well
unmoving horses gallop like thunder
around the pain of the coloured carousel

the questions contaminate the interrupts
inhuman voices soon grow bolder
nervous faces flit from eye to eye
finding chaos at last in the order

the writer lies sleepless in anguish
staring up through the nightmare above
the poetry that crawls from my heartache
is written in the blood of our love

  2. Dear Elephant,

    Magnificently heartbreaking. I need to go to my happy spot after that one. Well done.

    I don’t know how you do it; but you do it so well. As Anja says, painfully beautiful

    Painfully beautiful.


  5. Nice poem! Eloquently expresses the dillema of a poet.


Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
