Frozen Ground

Time for another entry in Friday Fictioneers challenge, courtesy of Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. If you want to give it a try, check the info on her blog. 100 words more or less, inspired by a photo, here we go….

Stretch your sails and sail away,
search for that elusive land;
follow a promise of another day,
I promised long ago I’d understand.

I can almost touch your pain,
don’t you know how it feels?
You said things would be the same,
knowing all along our love kills.

We have tumbled from our cloud…
fallen hard to our knees;
lacking courage to speak out loud,
but there’s no hiding what heart sees.

Sun seems always too far away,
standing on a frozen ground.
Maybe someone will discover
our love in a box of lost and found.

  1. Whoa! I … LOVE … THIS! The theme of letting go mixed with regret. Very bittersweet.

    And the video … AWESOME! I have actually seen it before! I watched it a lot a few years ago. One of my favorite songs in show-biz. A good compliment to the poem.

    Five out of five Send In The Clowns!

    That was truly marvellous, Loré. I don’t want to repeat what all the others have said… so, what they said! And I loved that last line, too (OK. I couldn’t help it… had to say it!)
