Dark Emptiness


I can smell the wind coming from the ocean
And waves tumbling turning red
As the sun goes down in the west
Our love has gone away with it
Your words were bitter like almond bread
Your eyes betrayed me
With your last kiss
Your love was already dead
And my love taken away from me
Like a dark coat
Loneliness comes my way
Covers me up in sorrow
Between scattered glass
Covering me up with darker thoughts
Until the flickering of the flame goes out
And only leaves behind the ashes
I am telling my story to the ocean and sand
And it washed away by the current
And brushed ashore into my face
And I wish it would go away
To another world to see
And I want to turn my back
And try and walk away
But where there was pain in my body
There is only emptiness to hide away
And I wish I could lose this heart
Or exchange it for another
Loneliness covers me up
In that dark coat of sorrow
I will wait till tomorrow
For you to come back

Hello Tinks, kind of sad but it is you poetry
Reviewed by Felix Perry 1/10/2006
Salt tears must mingle with the oceans salt water to give your poems the magic that you always have their. The heartache, the longing and the quiet hope that maybe some day life as you knew it will return. YOu capture these feelings and share them with your readers honestly and openly and we feel your feelings and long to take the pain away.
Great job as always Tink.
PS...Sorry I havn't been able to catch up lately due to new job and health issues been either working, sleeping or struggling to keep up with the reviews and not give up on writing the odd poem myself. THink of you often though. Fee

the ocean holds so many secrets, and i truly think that the storms it tosses ashore is because it wants to cleans itself of sorrow and leave all the secrets ashore
