O, The Dripping Sadness


Shattered and mangled are my wings,
     Forlorn is my trembling heartbroken soul;
I am crushed and humbled, torn apart,
           Life has left me broken and lost.

                          O, listen to my weeping.

I have followed the vine of my life,
     Each delicate leaf has been a treasure;
Twining through the chapters of my journey;
           Each sadness is a poem to be written.

                            O, wipe away my tears.

The vine leads me down a winding road,
      To names engraved in stone for eternity;
But each sadness has given my soul a voice,
             Sorrow and pain drip from my pen.  

                            O, the dripping sadness.
