Torn Seams

Carrying the weight of loss... After all these years, I still have unanswered questions ripping me apart. Trying to repair an unraveling life. I don’t know how to sew, not like you. Needle in the eye, tears in my pocket. Stitches rubbing together break me in two and I don’t know what to do. Turning myself inside out over losing you. Time cannot heal torn seams.

A poem of pain but great metaphorically.

Beautiful write, Berteena - wonderful phrasing and a poignant, melancholy atmosphere, with crimped, dark edges ... I enjoyed this very much. Blessings, and keep up the great work! :-) <3

Hi, well penned poem of what we all experience...yet, we move on. When loss lands, it makes one helpless. Thank you Panagiota

Some people never get over a lost love and others move on like nothing happened. Nicely penned, Berteena, I can feel the emotions in this. All my best. John
