The Darkness Where I Lie

Witness now the darkening sky,
leaves of autumn darting by,
red so pure, they make me cry,
against the blackness where I lie.

At dusk the sky is oddly lit,
clouds of gray with purple bits,
heavy sky, as I sit,
wondering when my heart will quit.

Morbid thoughts match the scene,
as I against my pillows lean,
in life and death, I'm in between,
the sky, I think, knows what I mean.

    You should save this as it is a keeper. That last line has resonance, to be sure. Thank you for your kind remarks. They mean a lot to me. Merry Christmas! Gerard

    Your sad words brought tears to my eyes, Danielle. Keep looking for the light that shines even through those "clouds of gray." Your strength and courage have been an inspiration to me and you are always in my prayers. God bless you with a nice Christmas with your family! Much love to you, dear. Carolyn

    Wow... This is excellent poetry dear Danielle, ...however, I feel the weariness and darkness overcoming the thoughts of one who lies, looking out into the winter sky with thoughts of futility. I hope the sun comes out soon,....please know thoughts, prayers and good wishes are being sent to you, that soon you will have a healthy life back on track. Take care...lots of hugs, warm thoughts and love. Carrie
