Fog – A Poem of Loss

Leave a comment



Lost in my fog of misery

unable to find my path

and not wanting to.

Sitting in the fog

with knees drawn high

against a chest so tight.

Head drooping and

tears streaming

down pale cheeks.

My mind a misty place

where the fog swirls heavy

and thick.

Fighting memories of a love

that wasn’t meant.

So little time together__

so many memories made.

They haunt me now

as I gaze at the cold stone

of your grave.

I hide deep in the fog

of my mind.

The pain only just bearable.

Fearing the fog will clear

and in the clearing

unbearable pain waits__

to claim me.

I hide in the fog

and put off my inevitable

journey through hell.
