Little Comfort

It’s not likely to be tougher than this
Pain exceeds the wildest of imaginations
Sunsets fade into melting memories
Pleading is heard with no negotiations

Control keeps its distance on the furthest horizon
Progress stays on the trail of stagnation
Sunrises fail to uplift with their vibrancy
An opened door leads only to resignation

  1. My dear Lauren, as with all of your poems, this is so beautifully written. You have eloquently expressed feelings of sadness and depression. Life throws all kinds of pain and heartache at us, but on the flip side of the coin, it shows us a world of beauty and love.
    Sending big hugs your way. ❤

    1. Thanks so much, Michelle, for your lovely comment. Life isn’t all rosy, but all circumstances inspire…and yes, on the flip side is a world of beauty and love – beautiful words. Sending much love and many hugs your way, too. ♥
