Stranded

In the midst of all this water

In the lake of tears I cried

I sit here on my island

Trying nothing but to hide

From what’s falling down around me

And the ruins left inside

Constantly wishing, hoping, praying

That my pain will finally subside.

But as the sky around me darkens

And sun gives way to night

All I see is shadows crawling

Into spaces that had light

Before I came here to this island

Before I gave up on the fight

So now I sit here on my Isle of Tears

Alone and broken down

And all that there is left to do….

Is accept that I am stranded.

  2. Really moving and brilliantly written.
    โ€œAll I see is shadows crawling
    Into spaces that had lightโ€.
    I hope morning comes again soon and brings with it a glorious sunrise to brighten your day ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. As long as there was enough light to chase the shadows away ๐Ÿ™‚ Itโ€™s about to get dark here now, but thatโ€™s OK, I love my long late nights.

  3. Wow Z!!! This was really awesome! Great Poetry!! Every line and stanza so filled with emotion and feelings so exquisitely described and expressed! A real joy to read!!! The only thing that could make it better – perfect would be to have you recite it on audio so can be relieved of having to read your words and instead can close our eyes and listen to your Voice as we visualize and imagine what we hear. I took a vote of all your followers and it was unanimous! Everyone wants to hear you reciting this poem!!! Please??? Your fans have spoken?? LOL Please?

    Oh, and since all your followers Love and Care about you it would be so great if you could post your comment above – “I am doing fine!
    (Poem notwithstanding haha). Thanks for asking ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Have a great week!”
    as an author’s note at the end of the poem – as an update so we don’t worry!! ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข Please???
