my heart withers

My heart withers
on the vine.
My fingers reach
and stretch
across the earth
to find.
I wish to hear
that note,
that familiar song.
But now I'm blind;
I hear only silence,
feel only cold.
There's too much, and
it makes me cry.
There are no soothers
or sayers to wipe my tears clean.
So I just grow around
these cluttered things.
I don't take flight,
I have no wings.
I weave and wind
across the time,
with blackness
cluttered, trailing behind.

  1. I know the depth of pain a mother suffers when her child is hurting - you have captured the bleakness of this time well.

  2. Thank you for reading and your comments.
