heart of sorrow

the truth is dull and shatters bones
and lies will leave you bleeding
before you take another step
you’ll see all hope receding
the warmth you knew in older days
now swamped by today’s fears
take a sip from my loving cup
and taste a mother’s tears
curse the course that brought you here
into the heart of sorrow
whisper goodbyes to those you love
for none will see tomorrow

    Very well written and very sad. I thought, for a brief moment…”when I read today’s news..will this poem have been prophetic..?” Very well done.

    • Thank you, again it was a case of the first line coming to me, and me liking it so much I had to write a poem so I could use it 😀
