Day 7: NaPoWriMo 2013 – Tears in Deluge

I’m sorry for the flood of depressing poetry, but given recent events, it’s what weighs heaviest on my mind. I feel a silver lining in each of them and I find them somewhat cathartic, so I expect there will be a few more. Perhaps some will find solace or strength in them.

I wrote for the daily NaPoWriMo prompt which called for a “declarative” poem consisting of a series of declarative sentences, finished with a question.

Tears in Deluge

The sun rises early.
Wind blows so strong.
Clouds appear pearly.
Today feels so wrong.

So many came by.
A message to share.
My mother did cry.
As father laid there.

A hole was dug out.
The casket was lain.
I wanted to pout.
There was such pain.

Tears fell in deluge.
For they were not, few.
Dad was a refuge.
Will you miss him, too?
