LOST

Sitting quietly beneath the old blue gum tree Flowers surround me lined in neat rows on the lawn White and blue, tall and short placed as if by gods’ decree My eyes mist, oh god what she had undergone Her face clouded in pain, body still as a frightened fawn The room white, Spartan white sheets drape the bed Her raven black hair no more, so much left unsaid Eyes of fierce emerald green now dull and sedate God let fall tears the day her mortal coil she did shed Soon again in each others arms, standing at heaven’s gate

Thanks Andrea, I read a poem by Broken wings and it gave me inspiration to write this. I had entered it in the Dizain comp but being silly me, i forgot about the syllable count as i fell into the poem. So a dizain that is not quite a dizain. I have withdrawn it. I read your dizain poem, absolutly superb! A sure first. Love Shane xxx

Thank you Bev for reading my work. I wrote it after reading a wonderful, sad poem "and that comes from within" it touched me deeply. And you are right, what is unsaid is what will haunt us long after we have forgotten all else. It is a bottomess cup of despair that many are forced to drink from, and that few can set down after tasting of it. love Shane xxx

Shane, your poem is full of deep pain, I know this pain of losing someone loved and being unable to do a thing to change the end, beautifully written and best of luck in the contest and thanks for visiting my poetry ~~
