Written for: Poetic Asides November Chapbook Challenge – Day 10
For today’s prompt, write a tragic poem. Two courses of action here: Write a poem that is heavy, or write a poem that is light. Or write a poem that could be heavy or light. For instance, a tragedy could be Shakespeare’s Hamlet or a bad hair day.
Time, time, give it time,
Repeat sympathizers, well meaning but stilted.
All you can do is nod, while a ragged
Gut tells you that time cannot
Ease your torment over
Death taking life so early.
Yesterday is not erased by today.
