My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

May 15, 2011 “ink stains”

“ink stains”

a broken heart weeps sadness into a soul

a pen bleeds tears onto a page

the black ink stains

of forgotten promises

discarded dreams

and lost love

flow in undulating swirls and curls

fluid shadows

crossing and crisscrossing

as taciturn thoughts form wounded words

at the trembling tips of a poet’s fingers

the untouched white field

laid bare to the sanguinary point

suffers in sacrificial silence

save the slow whispering scratch

of a weeping pen

scribing the mournful tears

of a drowning soul

  3. Lovely word play. I loved these lines

    weeping pen
    scribing the mournful tears
    of a drowning soul

    The imagery and emotion are profound. Well done…
