Shadows Of Yesterday

~~ The bottomless pit of time, days long past, memories like tangled vines of a jungle, rampant foliage, leafy ferns to grasp. Rotting, flowering parasites struggle, for life, like an unfinished masterpiece, I thrust grief into the misty tangle. Grasping for something beautiful, for peace, in the inky shadows of yesterday I dance with sorrow, crying for release. Within this maze, this labyrinth, I pray, mourning for yesterdays I cannot change, I twirl, swirl, waltzing amongst trees, I sway. I tremble in soundless silence of dreams, only waking, do I hear my own screams. ~~ July 9, 2013 Terza Rima For the contest, Terza Rima Sonnet

    This makes me quite sad, in it's beauty, and in the sorrow I read between each lovely line. So well spoken this is!
