Harmonious

by Frankie about a year ago in sad poetry
Report Story

A poem

Pain feels different when it’s shared

The knowledge of another

Somber

Forlorn

Bearing the burden

of sadness

and loss

Too,

is …

comforting ..

To ride alongside someone ,

Restlessly

Sorrowfully

Deliriously

choosing the saddest of songs

to hum .

The tears fall

Collectively,

Interchangeably.

No words required

no acknowledgement sought

just two beings

Glumly

Simultaneously

Riding along .

Harmonious

But

When your other is gone

And no one else

Even thinks to play

y’all’s sad song

You are

Forsakenly

Solitarily

Riding along.

Only then

You realize

The silence

Darkness

That was there

All along

Only when

There’s no one

To put on

the next song.

About the author

Frankie

I have no pleasure in the stimulants in which I so madly indulge. It hasnt been in the pursuit of pleasure that Ive periled life and reputation, but a desperate attempt to escape the torturing memories, & a sense of insupportable lonelines
