Melancholy Touched The Sky


Malevolent and dark like emotions deep

Sky and sea embrace once more

I gaze upon horizons wide so very wide

Fugaciously melancholy steps in…I cry

Bare my soul… a joke no more

Melancholy touched the sky

Melancholy touched my mind

Melancholy touched every core

Malevolent and dark like emotions deep

I pray dear Lord

Please help me cope this day

Melancholy touched my life yet again

Malevolent and dark are my thoughts

As sky and sea embrace forever more

I gaze upon horizons dark

My soul bare… before God

Melancholy touched the sky

Melancholy touched our world

Its usually me who makes you reach for the dictionary Tink but you had me with "fugaciously." What a great word.
A beautifulpoem here, full of sadness and yearning. The music set it off perfectly too.

You most certainly and effectively convey your emotions via your verses, TinkaSweets. It it is any consolation, many will relate; sadly but truly. Love, peace, and strength to you,

A very emotional poem indeed, makes me want to say...just don't give my experience when all seems to be going wrong, and I just can't see the light...I keep pressing on, usually because it is the nature of me, and very soon, very soon, I begin to see a dim, thin, ray of light trickling through...and before I realize what has happened there it is in full beauty God Ray of Sunshine smiling down on me...and you know he was there the entire time, I only allowed thoughts of doubt cloud my view...keep looking up you will find your ray of sunshine. {Hugs} from a friend.

Tinka my heart is pierced just thinking of how you are feeling to write such a poem. Don't lose faith dear one, this too shall pass. Keeping you in prayers.

Reviewed by Felix Perry 10/6/2006
When the actions happen that create such sadness and melancholy it is often hard to see far enough ahead where there again will be light and smiles and brightnes. Your pain and your families is real and will always be a part of you because of your loss, now will someday be tomorrow and you will find your smile again.

Wow, your words are so heavy with pain and the painting of poor Monet's dead wife! Hope all is well for you.

{{Hugs}} for you, Tinka. With how you're hurting, I wish they were more than just the virtual kind. You got down way under my skin with the sadness in this one ... touched my soul. I pray it will be better for you with a new dawn.

a thought that hurts deep
into the soul,
sad are the words written
from a brokrn en heart

Love & Peace
Reviewed by Victor Buhagiar (Reader) 10/6/2006
One cannot, in my opinion, decide if the emotions portrayed in any poem are personal to the writer or not. Personally I rarely write about myself. But with you Tinka, I have a sinking feeling that you truly bare your soul to us and so I grieve for you. No one should suffer so much. Be strong. There is a silver lining. Victor

Tinks ...

My chest is heaving sissy, and my eyes are tearing again. The last four lines are breathtaking, and your use of the word "fugaciously" was inspired. Stand strong!

One day at a time sissy ...

Yur bud ...
