fleeting sorrows

its gone before it begins
cold rain
hammering down the inside
tracks run heaven and hell
silver lining wasnt in the cloud but the spoon

childhood ghosts dance
behind weary eyes
faded hollow echoes
another slip knot wraps cordially

spike runs deep
pink flesh tightens unfurls itself
against the coming cold
warm soft waves crash
against fleeting sorrows

  1. it’s gone before it begins..and still some of the cold crept into the day…so good when the warm waves are faster and stronger than those childhood ghosts

  2. Brain always steals my favorites first…I like the slipknot reference too, but all the imagery was fantastic. All of it pointing to pain, hurt, for me, its the great live unlived, and the result that comes when the realization becomes too much to bare. Hope I didn’t take too much liberty with your words!

  3. Yours are words I can understand while I read good poetry.So much it’s said, so much- It needs a lot to be concerned about and nothing…
    I love it all , and ah, that closing *warm soft waves crash
    against fleeting sorrow* outstands perfectly.

    Thanks so much for commenting in Sweeter P.

  4. beautiful haunting imagery – I especially like this part –

    silver lining wasnt in the cloud but the spoon
    childhood ghosts dance
    behind weary eyes
    faded hollow echoes

  5. dynamic piece…imagery is great and it does allow the mind to wander in several different interpretations. A good write to read over and let it carry ~Rose

  6. the title of this poem is quite befitting to its message.
    many sorrows …a retinue of recurring fleeting pains.
    I (the reader) feel the suffering…this is what the poet’s
    poem is supposed to do. you succeeded here.
    the poem makes me (the reader) want to know more
    about the speaker. What happened? Why?
    good poem.
    thanks for sharing.
