Grief

January 4, 2009 at 4:18 pm (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)

 

There is a silent cry rising

to the stars. An endless

outpouring of tears, a wall

of pain. This is the world

wall, the human wall, the wail.

No my friend, you will not

get past. You are here, part

of the moon’s dark shadow.

The tears roll on, the cries

are menacing in their silent

shrieks. All fail, tears,

whispers, love, move like

ghosts around the stars.
