Stone Wall

Sitting  at  the same table day after day

Silence screaming deafening, though  there is  nothing left  to say.

The cracks showing more as the years go past

Huge  the ever growing  gulf between us  now the dye is cast.


Reaching out  to try  and touch you, maybe reach you this time

You ignore me, look away , I’ve failed again. What was my crime?

Facing down the days, lost and  alone  in a painful daze.

What happened  to us, lost  forever now in this dark,dark maze.


Acrostic Stone wall

Simple words become a damnation

Taunting barbs of hates creation

Only together out of habit ,out of fear

No longer passion, just dry eyes not  a tear.

Every day an empty void


Wasting  our lives, communication cut to the bone

Arguing, when did this house became  no longer home.

Longing  for a touch,a tender look

Lost the days when our passion the world shook.

    I feel a lot of pain in these two pieces. Dark and broken. 😦
    Well done.

    Feelings, deep and dark, wanting to communicate, yet held back by a wall, silence…. Wonderfully done, both times Sweet Willow. Hugs aplenty always. xPenx

    Milady Willow…

    Extremely evocative, my dear… Your sorrow is reflected in my tears for you… Be strong, though, you’re not alone…. Sorry I can’t stay longer to see more posts… I try to get by when I’m not in too much pain, but, tonight isn’t one of those times… I’ll be back when I can stay longer, see more posts, & have the wherewithal to talk more…

    Take care, you are loved….

    each broken part has a place
    just waiting for someone to figure out where it belongs again…
    such a stillness within these words….

        all too common …
        sad how only one side usually sees or feels
        until its too late and the other gives up
        you’re such a strong visual writer of real life Willow

    I know this wall. Well enough to know it can come down. Seems a lifetime may pass in the meantime.

    Evokes so much emptiness, sorrow, loneliness, sadness, desperation, loss. A flame suffocating from lack of oxygen. Very well done!

    Such power in your words and images! Those walls are so strong and no one has the strength (or desire) to dismantle them. They become prison walls for too many. Once again, thanks for tackling the tough issues.

    I know this wall as well… I wrote about it here ( … and there… in what now seems like (dark) ages ago… Believe it or not… we also conquered that wall… but, not before nearly everything else had to pretty much crumble around it as well…

      Yes I do believe you . It is almost impossible but the view from the other side is worth the effort. Well done you. Going to read your post now. 🙂 xxx
