Crying on the Inside

She’s crying on the inside

Standing lone on storm’s edge

Light fades as clouds collide

A silhouette lashed by rain sharp wind

 

Arms open to express soul’s pain

She’s crying on the inside

Shadows swallow anguished dark remains

Raven’s silence signals defeat again

 

On an island lost in hungry seas

Sorceress mutes with no spell to chant

She’s crying on the inside

Praying for one last final chance

 

She’s crying on the inside

She’s crying on the inside

She’s crying on the inside

As last light grabs hold her rain soaked hand

 

And now

    the raven stands lone

    on its water worn black smooth stone

    as light departs

    forever

    more

    and the raven stands lone

    in its darkness

    in its darkness

    in its darkness

    forever

    more

    This is excellent – I think this prompt could link many of our poems of pain together
    Nicely expressed
    The Oh Lord Hear my Prayer is pertinent for this dark moment

  2. really great use of repititon henryto drive this piece…like themore subtleat the begining in eachstanza but then really takes off as you climax in this…i am glad thelight found her…

  3. Hello,
    I was here visiting your work and found this piece. I simply must leave a comment as this one dances on the edge of darkness and the depth of the soul. She’s crying on the inside, Standing alone on a storm’s edge..powerful words..this does beg to be put to music as I can feel the flow of emotions. This touches a chord within myself..a melody so expressive it makes me weep. I can feel the torrent waves within the lines…excellent writing…a guitar weeping to the rhythm of time…
