My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

September 1, 2010 “missing my love”

For One Shot Wednesday

“missing my love”

the gloomy gloom glooming
of the dim doom dooming
from sad tears tearing
up my eye
the drip-drip-dripping
of the raindrops dropping
from grey clouds clouding
up my sky
the tick-tock-tocking
of my heartbeats knocking
from my heart’s lock locking
up my pain
the click-click-clicking
of my heart’s lock picking
from my love’s love drying
up my rain

  15. Song-like and delightfully sweet! Although I hate to see hearts breaking and love gone missing 😦

    The hiss-hiss-hissing
    Of my heart still sighing
    Over love’s feather flying
    Up the sky


    I so love the sound of your poem, Tracy!
