Freewrite: Lament

Posted by in Writing

Mourning the Drop-
Like dew, evaporated
Dissipating: a flock of birds
Scattered in the sun

Or-

Spinning through a rainstorm
The the halted quiet: overpass
All the mercy in that moment
In an instant: gone.

What sudden sadness is this?
Thick and wavering;
The weight of my lament:
This crushing heart-song?

All those chemicals
Swirling indiscriminate
So wicked, so heartless
With a wave of disregard

Rise up! I say. Welcome!
What joy! What merriment!
Dopamine! Oxytocin!
Come! Come! Come!

Taunting me with always
And leaving me with never;
He made us in pairs, they say
How cruel, says the heart.
