My Husband Your Bride

Like a ghost I flitter through the night
keeping to the shadows 
abhorring the light
Tears... Unrelenting grief

The night camouflages and no one can see 
the shadow of the person that once was me
The day lays me bare with nowhere to hide
Where the raw pain and your memory collide
Agony... Unrelenting grief

Gone is the treasure of our history
Evidenced in this lonely debris 
Only silence now 
reminisces with me
Anguish....Unrelenting grief

A penned art on vellum once tied in velvet ribbon
What lies beneath me now the conclusion is written
Droplets of amber have spilled upon this page
They pool in the dirt here upon your grave
Desolation...Unrelenting grief

Remembering the touch of our feet
Fingertips on my shoulder your breath on my cheek
Early mornings recounting your dreams
25 years How oh how am I supposed to breathe 
Heartbreak...Unrelenting grief

You took with you the heart of me
My glory my purpose my identity
You disappeared without a trace
Hide and seek in an unfamiliar place
Incertitude...Unrelenting Grief

Can you hear them cry 
Oh Daddy why
Gut wrenching wails 
Swollen eyes fail
Empty...Unrelenting grief

Till death do us part
My husband your bride
You parted I perished 
With your suicide
Irrecoverable... Unrelenting grief

    I feel somewhat guilty to say this is a great poem, but alas it is, and yes the reader can feel the pain and the depth of sadness in this, I can only hope you are having sunnier days now!

    Oh yes Arthur, I have just become engaged to the most wonderful man. We've purchased a ranch and my boys love him completely. Right now at this moment, cloud 9 is an understatement. I love your poetry as well. Hugs dear one.

    Great to meet you, Sarai. This was impeccably powerful, yet intensely sad. Your lines contained a very fierce poignancy. I can tell it wasn't easy to write this. Stunning work.
