A Large Tear

There’s a crack in the page of reality A part of life so torn it departs us I saw no hope in fixing the tear’s body The whole page is faulty now, an emptiness It’s hopeless, the tear is complete and true A part of life so torn it departs us I don’t know a more impure thought of you There’s nothing here to fix this old paper It’s hopeless, the tear is complete and true The sky is always white and it’s not azure Nothing is normal now, the tear goes too deep There’s nothing here to fix this old paper I’m under the tear, in fear I start to weep I’m scared that it may get to me and I die Nothing is normal now, the tear goes too deep We all must perish, the tear covers the sky There’s a crack in the page of reality I’m scared that it might get to me and I die I saw no hope in fixing the tear’s body

    This is good. It holds a lot of meaning, I enjoyed the read. A crack in the page of reality. Thanks for sharing and for reading Linda Marie's Prayer/poem. God bless you. Lucilla
