The ache of cannot be

A fleeting touch
Sought to comfort
Leaves a trail
Of longing
His haunted visage
Speaks of broken hearts
That
Casts a shadow
So deep
Of sorrow
Should he let lose
He might drown…
But it is no matter
To him; to think of future,
For now and until
Such time
He dwells in
The abyss
Of need…

The ache of cannot be

su2anne

Balwyn, Australia

Artist's Description

the dictates of life can mean that we can yearn for what is not possible
yet this does not diminish the pain or make it less real
this is poem touches on that…
