Alone she sits in a living room chair

Looking through walls with a blank stare

Time has left it's stamp on her brown hair

She remembers when there was no gray there


The walls represent life, empty and cold

She recalls her youth when days were bold

Now pays a price for the bill of goods she was sold

Youth was fleeting, she's become too soon old


She remembers when life was new

Falling the first time she heard "I love you"

She found those words to be a seductive brew

Too soon she discovered they weren't true


Walls stare back in condemnation

Causing her much consternation

She goes throudh her days without relation

Sentancing herself to isolation


Her entire life the womb lay bare

Now too old to carry life there

No memories of children does she have to share

Just these walls and a blank stare


One man left her with a bitter taste

She fell for him in such haste

No love upon her had he graced

Thus, a once loving heart was laid to waste


Eyes stare out blank and cold

Love to her was just fool's gold

She laments hving no one to have and hold

                                       Due to the bill of goods she was first sold

Your poem impressed upon me how quickly time passes. It also brought to mind the importance of treating every heart with care and also how vital it is to move past heartache when it does occur because if you don't it can mess you up for a lifetime. Such a heavy makes me ache. Well done Henry!

What a cold and empty life you describe so well. I can sympathize with this suffering briefly but can't begin to understand not picking up the pieces and living again. It must be hell on Earth. And, as with everything, there have to be extenuating circumstances. We can't know the demons in someone else's mind. Well done, Henry. Nice, consistent rhyming pattern.

This is a very sad state to be left in…I can empathize…you expressed this vividly!


It just goes to show the awful trauma and scars that following this world’s aspirations can reap…very sad.

I have been so blessed to find a love that never hurts and never leaves, but always fulfills, satisfies and nurtures profoundly.

Praise the Lord Jesus’ wonderful love.
