OctPoWriMo Day 26 – In a land of sadness


In a land of sadness, broken dreams are made
Which strips away any vital connection
And life was gravely portrayed
His name no longer mentioned
Of empty sheets and promises
No sense in carrying on
When everything is aimless
She’s been conned and he’s gone
When poems are so melancholic
His name no longer part of her speech
Life could be mysterious and cryptic
Acceptance could be beseech
While firmly grasping the goblet by the stem
She used to be happy and carefree
He could no longer be condemned
She just have to accept that she’s free


Left to bite her tongue
Can’t even speak her truth
Enough is enough she says
Time to move on now
No moaning
