About Me

echoes reverberated found place in my heart, still resonates not knowing into how many hearts

THE FINAL EMBRACE

In the enclosed dungeon
shuddering
I lay breathless
suffocating

endlessly here forever
waiting
not to yield 
wanting


hoping for the hopeless
grace
in my destined final 
embrace

I hear the
voices
on the other
shore

the sorrows I
caused
the tears someone
bore

now it's my
heart
to them reaches
out 

yet they know of
nothing
my heart is myrrh
burning

and oblivious to my
prayer
love weeps at my 
door

  2. Your poetry is like a story. And just when you want to know what happens, it stops. I love that!

  3. Though this poem shares quite a bit of pain, I like that it also speaks of hope and grace; and I hope for love to triumph in the end.

    1. yes,it is love that triumphs, but one is unable to express, and the other never knows.

  5. We can feel the pain and also wonder about the context - and whether the dungeon is real or a metaphor. A lot of beautiful lines in your poem, Jossina!
