Poetry Poem: The Pearl

Poetry Poem: The Pearl

The dignity of this sorrow lies between

Your sadness and my distress

We had those struggles

Interludes of passion too

Before you went your way

Hair wavering, eyes blistered with tears

Anger tore up the flower garden in my heart

Leaving sorrow or was it sadness

Clinging letter by letter to those few resilient weeds

We tried again and again but our holy ground was waisted

Sorrows resignation is no place to plant love

Sadness no place to accept happiness

Captured in distress

Caught in the quietude

My reflection shattered

My soul which mattered

Reached out into the still pool

Where I found this

pearl.
