Daily Prompt – Size

A tear drop is painted on the wall

It’s the many details behind the fall

Telling its secrets to all who will see

Of hope lost and grief in travesty

Large or small, it’s the size of an ocean

A capsule of self contained emotion

That no ship can sail across

Without sustaining its great loss

How does one get past something like this

My head hurts worse than heart in what I miss

Among these are the days I could lose on a wave

Instead of wondering if I will end up in my grave

Before I hold my little girls in my arms again

The overwhelming feelings send me reeling again


Bal Harbour - A Drop The Size of An Ocean
