“Mourning You” - Molly Marr

In blues and blacks bereft

Tear droplets fall.

Cloudy skies heed

Not the drops of blood.

Why this hole,

Why these dark tears?

Why no sunshine peers

Through my smeared windows?

All forgotten, yes;

Heart abandoned, left.

Little, not lost, is past.

Present, chaotic and listless.

Scented roses once were.

White clouds, skies blue, flew over.

Laughter, joyous, rang out

Amidst dell, forest and clover.

Why now the heavy silence?

Why does the crow call alone?

It is black and gray, raw.

All the geese have flown.
