september hues

Spread the love

I sought to delve deep into the cold abyss
of severed hearts as tainted shadows hover
above. I breathe; knowing there is no way
around grief but through ― let love be fire
cause I am the spark; my soul propitious I
govern the dark.

    As usual, your rhyme sets the tone so well, Sanaa. Hovering shadows can darken us, can’t they?

      Indeed they can, thanks for stopping by, De ❤️

  5. One of the things, hopefully, we learn in life, is that we have a lot more control & influence on our world than we originally were taught to believe–that’s why I adore metaphysics, removing fear of death, & showing that we, ourselves, are the co-creators that govern our own darkness.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Indeed, thanks for stopping by, Glenn 🙂

  21. Wonderful image of you, the spark, governing the dark. And yes, absolutely right that there is no way around grief but through. (Painful, but it gets you out the other side faster.)

    1. Sanaa says:

      Most definitely ❤️ thank you so much, Rosemary 😀

  22. Grief is the kind of darkness that sets thick and oily around the heart. But like your poem suggests, our hearts can be so fiery bright… and we, when we try and push, can certainly make light out of the dark.

    Love this, Sanaa.
