Abberations of a flailing mind

The morning births a new day's sun
Revealing night's shadowed pun

Why this road, you ask of me?
Something wrong, I've done to thee?

My body weighs like anchored ships
No words I speak from quivering lips

My hands are bound, my mind is spent 
As thoughts incarnate my lovers scent.

My sight is scant, a labored breath
Desperate cries, My soul near death

Each beat my heart now pays its dues 
For loving you was mine to choose

I lye in angst, a tattered seam 
A chapter closed on lover's dream

Oh my lord, my dearest friend
I pray to thee in hopes to mend

This broken heart, of saddened tale
To find the truth where others fail

My dearest God I crave thee now
Since my love has flown to thou

These answers that I fail to find
Aberrations of a flailing mind

Imprison me from heavens love
And make me doubt my God above

But I will not let idle mind
Keep me from my destined time

For life is short and one day near
I'll hold the one I love most dear

So steadfast will I trust in him
And never doubt my God within.

    I love the meaning in your words. And how it ends with so much trust in God. Very nice, Bernard.

    Bernard, finding myself on a road with no answers. Sometimes I wonder what have I done, and what has gone wrong... but, you are right. I have to find my trust in God. Doubt does me no good. God bless....pd

    Hi Linda, When my wife died It took me many months before I could gain my faith back. Allow yourself time to grieve and be mad if you feel like, God understands. He loves us and always will. Big Hugs

    David is right about your faith...I questioned my faith after Joshua passed..take a look at "Piece Within" it's a Ghazal that David helped me format. It's similar to your emotions in this piece. I feel your pain and doubt... (You may locate it towards the mid to bottom of my 1st page)..xx Holly Moore

    Bernard your doubt in faith is justified at the moment, but you have an ability to write in a way that holds the reader, this is also couplet form and it would be better visually if you space each couplet, if you need any help just ask or soup any of us, click on the envelope and cup by our names and you can then send a private message and get one in return....

    Thank You Audonus, that means a lot to me as I am very new to poem writing. I really do not know anything about technical poem writing I just write what comes from my heart. I want to learn more though. Thanks so much for the reply. Bernard
