Robert Brewer’s Wednesday poetry prompt~12/03/2014
For today’s prompt, write a care poem. As with many of the prompts, a care poem can be handled (with care) in many different ways: write a poem in which you care about someone (or something); write a poem about a caregiver (or care receiver); write a poem about the Care Bears; or if you don’t care about anything, let that guide you.
This unbearable feeling is hard to share.
After many years suffusing into each other
An unbreachable gap has come to appear,
Shattering feelings built over many a year.
We shared many times with mutual respect
Happiness with laughter, always together
Never stopping to consider this awful end
The Death of a lover and a very dear friend
At the last, Death rips and shreds the past
Smashing our life to a million shards
The painful cutting and tearing apart,
Bloodless breaking of a once proud heart
Memories abound in solitary sadness
Flooding my mind with thoughts and despair
You were once here with me,
This harsh world continues without a care.
