This is a poem about a lost love. Enjoy.



By Will Wareing


What was once sweet

Now lies soiled;

What was once my heart’s true joy to greet

Is now a broken rope uncoiled.


And such is the way I face the day

With a fake ill smile to pretend I’m okay;

When nothing, yes, nothing can fix what lies broken

I scream dust in the echoes, unheard and ill spoken.


Forever and ever

In every endeavor

To tread through the dread

Of a love tie now severed.


What hellish and demonic designs so declared

That I be thrust headlong into heartache so strong,

A heartache for which I was never prepared

Which sent all my will to live long gone.


Oh sweet serenity newly settled in severance so sadly

Such terrible tremors of torturous torment in truth;

Oh how I miss my lost love so madly

Oh how I wish I hadn’t lost my Ruth.
