Morning Has Broken
Morning has broken
It's fallen apart
Bright bloody shards
That ripped right through my heart

Sandpaper eyelids
Like grains from the shore
Swollen and bloodshot
So tender and sore

Evening has shattered
The beauty all gone
All I can do now
Is hold on until dawn

Midnight now beckons
With arms open wide
I drown this tired heart
In this ocean I've cried

Placed my cornerstone
On a foundation of sand
Built without thinking
My castles so grand

Storms raged against me
The walls crumbled down
Morning has broken
No sun to be found

Glata   I know well the experience of finding those forgotten writings or letters from our younger days; Sometimes the memories are fond, other times... a bit more melancholy.  It is what keeps our lives interesting; The older we get the more memories and experiences we have to fill those empty moments.   I hope you have many more wonderful than not.                                                                     Bruce

This points out just how fragile life is, so much so that it can be thrown out of balance in the mere blink of an eye. The metaphor of building a castle upon the sand without thought is absolutely brilliant Glata, it brings the whole thing together in a very neat package.  Hugs,   Henry

This poem is six years old -- but it speaks to me of now.  This is exactly how I feel.  It is comforting to know that my friends have all been here.  --David

Something I'm always doing myself and thinking did I write that sometimes it seems a lifetime ago gives you a kind of weird feeling,great lines GiGi ~Graham.

This is seriously a very stunning poem, with so much description and so much emotion. The times we go through our depression spells is the darkest, we think. Luckily the son was found GG...

Comment By: FreeLinda Jo on October 1, 2012 11:52:48 PM Report many descriptive phrases sad.  Is it safe to say, you've come a long way, Baby?  Depression hurts, leaves scars, and stops you in your tracks.  We go through so much in our lives but  I am so glad you are feeling better today.  your poems always touch us in a special way.
