This week's prompt for Carry on Tuesday:
asks us to use the first words from the final paragraph of
Crime And Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
"But that is the beginning of a new story"
Her story told
of a love so strong..
She reached, and he was gone.
to fill the blanks..
where once he dwelt.
trod through empty rooms,
gone their dance,
in a trance
"Where is he?"
Gentle knock upon the door..
mystery no more
as Uniformed face
can't hide demise.
Veil of gloom
hiding track of tears
through the years,
through the void..
Until his spirit
set her free from agony,
to live again
eyes of a friend...
But that is the beginning
of a new story..
The last line is a wonderful release of the tension you created. Great flow of emotion.ReplyDelete
So sad and melodious but wonderful to read!ReplyDelete
Yes, a sad poem, but the hopeful ending gave it a lovely windup! Nice take on the Carry On prompt, and here's mine:ReplyDelete
