Finally Home.

For TheB, and all the other broken hearts…

Though tears like a river course down like rain,
And your heart by cupid’s fiery barbs is rent.
Although your cracked voice breaks out in wails,
And hell with all its fury and fiends seem sent.
Be still, Stay strong, you’ll make it home.

Though fear like a cloak your mind enshrouds,
And rabid voices, your reasoning besiege.
Though Night descends, your dreams to hound,
And heart beats resonate to a symphony of rage.
Be still, Stay strong, you’ll make it home.

Tears will fall down, but they only last so long,
Fiery barbs in time, will lie as cold as ash.
Cracked voices soon will yield to flowing tongues,
And hell with all its fury will soon seem all too brash.
Your fears? They’ll fade away like the chimes of bells once rung,
The voices in your head will soon seem not so harsh.
The light will come, and night’s darkness leave unsung

With heart beats racing to a different dialogue,
You’ll finally see, you really made it home.

  11. Ok this poem was EXCELLENT.I loved your rhyme scheme and the repetition of "be still, stay strong, you'll make it home". Also loved the final couplet. Loved this verse as well:"Although your cracked voice breaks out in wails,And hell with all its fury and fiends seem sent.Be still, Stay strong, you’ll make it home"Loved it.Hope your friends stay strong and make it home indeed.
