Hi everyone. I am new to this site. I have always loved writing but have no formal training. In other words I have no idea what I am doing. I would love to hear feedback but please be gentle on my fragile ego. This poem is about a very person experience. The entire thing is in metaphors because it is a very hard topic for me to write about but I still feel the need to write about it. So it will be hard to understand. But here it is.

A Mother’s Loss

 

That proficient iron.

A chasm sealed.

Thick with screams

Suffocating and unhealed.

 

Empty arms

Bewildered and aching,

A chasm twin

To an empty heart breaking.

 

A heart once filled

Not dense . . . but ablaze

Not strangled . . . but free

Now drained and a haze.

 

A torn embrace,

A forsaken battle,

A childless mother,

Love denied.

 

Stolen joy

Besieged by longing.

So deep, so aching

With madness creeping.

 

Slipping restraint,

A distant pounding.

Breaths withheld

A ravenous raging.

 

A rapist taking

What wasn’t yours.

Murderous are you

You raper of souls.

 

Caged inside

The pain I hide

Exhausted screams

But death . . .

 

Death Denied.
