A poem from my attic of poetry and fluid verse...good for a rainy day

It would take more than all winds combined
Tornadoes, hurricanes...all with a fierce whine
Still nothing could dry the tears hung out
For sadness engulfed in tears... I shout
Why are you gone? Why not take me?
Now I'm alone embraced in this sea
Of sadness, despair...pity this fool
Terrified of being just being...a tool
Of lonliness now no smiles to turn
The corners up...a kiss to burn
A tatoo of hope inside of these walls
Empty this gloom...hollow these halls
As shadows of fog broken with grays
No light to shine...gone are the days
The hope that has flown with wings in a sling
For ghosts are alone, love's kiss ...a sting
It bites to the bone...this pain never pales...
It soars with the moans then whispy it sails
Future...a question...Nothing to greet
Lonely souls sigh as hearts miss a beat
Chins dripping salt...liquids in pounds
Crying and streaming to pool on the ground
For now you have vanished and I am alone
Flown with the wind as hearts turn to stone
Tears of hot moisture burning the flesh
No tokens of love left here to mesh
Some recall of happiness...Jesus this pain
Marrying my tears in torrents it rains
Waiting for grace and praying I cry
Redeem all my tears and help them to dry

Susan this poem is outstanding! You wring every emotion and do it with such wondrous internal rhyme,meter and all around beauty of
expression! Splendid soulfullonging!

Reviewed by F William Broome
With deep admiration, I commend your writing this work. Men don't like to admit it, but there are many who tear up and flood the shoulder of a loved woman when things become unbearable. I admit this, proudly, for the reason is usually a deep and personal loss.
Golda Meir once said, "Those who don't know how to weep with their whole heart, don't know how to laugh either."
Our love to you, Bill

More often than I care to remember I was flooded by feelings similar to those you used in this powerful poem. Life here and now at times seems an array of agony and misunderstandings. And many more things none of which do anything good to the sensitive mind and heart. We are all here and now because we must learn things, none of us exists in this plane without reason. Teachings of the universe are extended by experience to those unable to perceive fully that what needs to be added to awareness. Our imagination is not yet powerful enough to anticipate all that we actually feel when we are right in the middle of situations. But after we've experienced it we sure know, even if only years after the fact. It is not testing, nor some form of cruelty, but merely the universe's way to teach the ignorant. But when going through this school of hard knocks poems like this one are flowing from the tip of our quill, then we actually have learned a thing or two. Thank you for creating and sharing,

This reminded me of the late and great Bob Marley's Redemption Song...
We must always rise above our emotions, to the clear ozone breathing of self belief, and an indomitable faith in the Most High...
When we do, all sadness disappears and dissipates like ice in the sun !
