Short Bereavement poem by Lucas Williams| Details |


Polarity, inception within a feigning ascension. Bleeding continuity grasps doubtful 
insanity. Paths diverging into a convoluted bereavement, a stagnant validity.

Adoptive Pain

I wish to fit bereavement 
that truly decays you all,
but I am at loss
for never mustering sentences enough
when I had the chance.
But I wish to care for those
who did.

As bereavement cries death's eulogy,
Faithfully God hones ideology.
Just keep love's miraculous notions. 
Overcoming perilous qualms.
For God's assurance shall see thee calm.

antiquities on the brink

the antiquitous souls.
" perhaps uninvitable?"
 mellowing amberred coals
 [portioned minds] , 
   on the brink of unstable?
 Stability became a commidity .
fathoms of time ago.
 drinking from a fountain of 
 They've forgotten of the seeds?
in need, to be sewn.

My Life

Husband, son, friend, colleague
Son of Dawn and Des
Lover of Sue, Shakespeare and opera
Who feels passion, amusement and excitement
Who fears bereavement, bedbugs and rejection
Who would like to see a ghost, a UFO and aliens
Resident of Plymouth, England

The Epitome of Existence

A maiden glimmering in an aura of justified bereavement. Shadows lurking amidst 
the epitome of existence, a crystalline signet. Is this a search for dreams or death? 
This eternally overt void leaves traces, a scar left unseen. Blades dance in a 
plethora of pain that envelops cognizance as sanity applauds

Short Bereavement poem by Paula Larson| Details |


Bestowed bereavement, this condolence graft,
the memorabilia sequence, mine not draft
like some ongoing virtue, depth not classed,
forever love relinquish at the pass
the merriment not, but laughing, seal to last,
joy to eternal hoping, prithee to cast
my soul, not rent with sorrow
seams with bast . . .

Short Bereavement poem by Satish Verma| Details |


An uneasy blood cascades
in the slender arteries
when you,
that I wanted to touch
disappear into twilight of memory.

Always a sense of bereavement.
why do I care for you ?
Time drops like an old coin
in the hands of a drifter.

Take away my sleep 
I want to wake for the whole night
and recite the unwritten poems.

Again life had been very kind to me
I am free to face
muse and sorrow.

Satish Verma

Short Bereavement poem by Betim Muco| Details |


Any bereavement
Needs a shoulder to lean its head on

I sing of you
Good friend of Hamlet the hero
To you he poured out his ravings and deliriums
You tried to keep his mind safe
To lead him back to his quiet, warm life
From the whirlpool of the nightmare 
Where his father's ghost had drawn him

Can a world succeed without you? 

I sing of you
Good friend and foundation of heroes

Short Bereavement poem by Lemonia Sims| Details |

True Friends

When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we find it often is those who instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.  The friend who can be silent with us in an hour of grief and and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Short Bereavement poem by | Details |


That I should e'er look out to see your face:
To stare out o'er the pasture graced with in-
finite beauty; oh then will I embrace 
Earth's fallen nights with all insomnia.
For dreams are only home to the dreamers.

I shall not glean such beauty as it stares
At me. I'll run into the phantom walls
That love builds, vis-à-vis, to blind the faults
Of which your beauty sternly delegates:
Bereavement one and transience--two.
For dreams are only home to the dreamers.
