The Answer to the Unknowable Why

By PoeticMeditations

The weight of your absence lies heavily
Upon this heart filled with bitter sorrow
Each passing hour a burden to endure
Unbroken, stretching beyond tomorrow

Upon the mind and soul it presses down
A crushing pressure beyond relief
Unrelenting pain that must now be borne
An oppressive stone, a smothering grief

Despair and silence, my twin companions
Forever severed by our last goodbye
Life now reduced to a single focus:
The answer to the unknowable why.

About poeticmeditations

The Romantic poets, nib pens, candlelight, waistcoats, and pocket watches are a few of my favorite things.
