Over, Under and Through


Because we missed the light,
at the far end of the tunnel,
itís all over now, which is better
I suppose, then being buried under,
though it would have been well worthwhile
had we somehow struggled through,
never mind the darkness, or our fears,
our tell-tale hearts would have found us
except we forgot how to recognize
each other in the dark.

Well done Ann. This is top notch!

I would shuffle the line breaks a little, but what do I know. Excellent poem.

this poem resonates, a torch in the dark field of fear. William Stafford has a good poem about travelling through the dark.
There's an irish writer whose book is called 'reading in the dark,,
set in the context of the north of ireland's 'troubles'.
I like fred astaire's 'dancing in the dark' most of all.

Anne, this really spoke to me. There are so many situations and relationships to which this could apply. Dawn

Interesting write. If I'm reading this right, you have crafted a wonderful short work that is packed with poetic depth. Enjoyed.
