One Day Away #poetry #suicide


One day soon

I will walk away

where you ask

neither matters

nor the day

*

i have found

too hard to bear

this shallow orb

few listen

fewer care

*

beseeching

hand stretches for me

look at the colors

feel the wind

light flicker in the trees

*

yes  i’ve seen beauty

and more

heard all  nature

crescendoed  sound

beckoning at the shore

*

it’s not the world

I care to leave

it’s the broken heart

fragile tears

love bereaved

*

do not miss me

when i’m gone

walk the beaches

touch her beauty

in her be strong

I shared this poem over at the Poetry Pantry hosted by Poets United

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are working with a team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
