Ashes


 



You vanished within my grasp
Flames of resentment
Scorched inner organs
Brittle tears scar
The charred remains

This piece felt so sad, bitter and hurting. Sometimes people causes us such undue pains and heartache in this life... and often without care. I really enjoyed reading it.

Once more you say a great deal with a minimum of words. I love that kind of poem. Thank you, Helen. Love and peace. Regis

Eliza,

Grief, vividly and painfully captured in a few powerful words. BRAVA!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
