Poetry Today

Empty Cradle

Empty cradle
Rocking
By the fireside
Silent tears
Fall silently
Barren hands
Long to hold
The forgotten
Painful memories
Held Tight
The light is no more
Receding joy
No longer my comfort
Scarred womb
Cried out
Hollow tears
Disconnect the soul
Empty cradle
My forever torment©
