The silence and thorns

The forests of apathy

In the village of the scorned

Where love is laid to waste

Amidst the silence and thorns


Trees with  leaves of green abound

Smiles on the faces of the forlorn

Still none hear the quiet cries

Amidst the silence and thorns


For this is the fate of the unloved

In this place where heartache is born

Lost inside this village here

Amidst the silence and thorns

Nice use of metaphor here…great imagery!

When you are lost in a wandering maze

wrapped in the shawls of apathy’s daze

squelched by a love that perish and rust

courting a village that’s founded in dust

let forlorn sorrows & mist from the tears

rise to the Lord…who vanquish all fears

turn to love faithful, that perishes never

in pastures green by still-watered rivers.

What a sad, yet oh so beautiful, piece Henry. I loved the images it brought forth.. Yes, the song came to mind and I found myself humming to it as I read your words..

This was divine..

You're writing a lot of "broken heart" writes of late! Hope that all is well with you...

This is a really good poem with a twist on that song. As always, a great write!
