…So I Write

Nostalgia
tainted
with sooty thoughts.

Not in control
of myself
I write

with pain
smudging
colorful memories
painting them black.

Love and light
are lost.

All that’s left
are regrets
that pinch

so badly
I get through

my days
turn slowly
into sleepless nights.

  1. The stanza breaks are brilliantly placed for that …..pause that just seems to emphasize the emotion. You are a strong writer, M Jay. Keep writing. Sending you love and light.

  2. love the Rolling Stones Jay.
    This was so well penned depicting pain that we all know or have know so well.
    I’m glad you’re writing about it as it’s so cathartic.
    You are an amazing writer.
    Sending love and hugs
