A Torn Heart Lives On

Dark veil of devastation and pain covers her soul,she breathes in vain. For the love of her life has left her here to view the world through eyes of fear. There can be no solace nor hint of reason; simply a heart that knows only treason. Some say he will dwell in a better place yet streaming tears burn into her face. Taken too soon and harshly at that he's finished at last his mortal combat. On crystalline waters he steps to the sky and no longer does he question why. Yet clouds of anger and confusion have smothered her in some illusion. She traces the timbre of his voice and knows she has to make a choice. He's gone but never from her soul. In time she'll leave this deep black hole. On a personal note: my dearest friend of thirty years lost her husband today from pancreatic cancer...this was written- tearfully -for her.
