Ponder

I sit there and ponder,
eyes as damp as can be.
I sit there and ponder,
as tears roll over my cheeks.

I write for the daunting shadows and love- oh, so fine.
I write for the scorching stars that never cease to shine.
I write for the fear of remembrance and every lost dime.

So, I pick this mighty pen up- as on and on it goes;
words that ached my heart so long- out they flow.

Yet irony reigns, for one thing shall forever remain-
the numbness, the void, the many fears destroyed.

I sit there and ponder,
seeking the chalice of divinity.
I sit there and ponder,
about all that could’ve been…

  1. Very interesting thoughts you’ve got in this poem, Ana; with the most striking for me, being the reasons for you writing.

    This is intricately penned, and I do hope we find many more splendid reasons to keep writing.
