dark mourning of the soul

1 Jul
[a re-verse]

dark mourning of the soul
for times lost
she never had
reaching out
scrambling through the shadows
wrapping them around her
like an old familiar
shying from the light
and its hateful glare
exposing truths
she already knows
her remorse
for things ungained
pockets emptied
and embers long since doused
remains her constant
her lover
her friend
and the sole consistency
of her mourning

This was written about a year ago now.  It’s interesting what all can change in a year.  Especially in my case.  I posted this poem as a reflection of how far things have come.  Despite everything, I couldn’t be further from the place I was in when I wrote this.  Time to start writing again…

    ….And it was about a year ago that I fell in love with your writing. That will never change for me. I can still remember leaving my first comment for you. I didn't even have to think, my hands just went to the key board and I had this urge to tell you that your writing was stirring something in me. – G

    That was really good Micael.
    Some things need to be read twice and savored. This was one of them…
