Of Love and Loss: Poetry from the Heart Part One


Lone and Joyless
By Tommie Stovall(c. 2000)

I am lone and joyless for my heart has died.
It went with my knight when to war he did ride.
He charged the field with his sword held high.
Rallying his warriors was struck down to die.
He fell on the field in the soft ground to lie.
Now sees me here alone a widow am I.

His warriors rode home with the story of his fall.
Black banners draped over parapits and walls
And my tears and cries did echo through castle halls
Now no more will he hear my maidens voice call.

See now I go to stand at his grave.
This bloody ground and home of brave.
To remember his name,deeds,love and caress.
Then to castle return and remain forever lone and joyless.

Empty
By Tommie Stovall

From sleep into darkness I awaken.
Trying to keep my feelings locked inside.
My tears are stinging my eyes.
This pain is to real to hide.

Why am I forsaken?
I am broken.
Why am I misbegotten?
I am opened.
Hold me like you used to.
No! Your gone to be forgotten.

The hurt I can't suppress.
My heart aches with emptiness.
The pain won't stay gone away.
I wish for blessed numbness.

Why am I forsaken?
I am broken.
Why am I misbegotten?
I am opened.
Hold me like you used to.
No! Your gone to be forgotten.

The sickness in my stomach greets me.
It is never far away.
A never ending knot of anguish.
I just can't make it fade.

Why am I forsaken?
I am broken.
Why am I misbegotten?
I am opened.
Hold me like you used to.
No! Your dead to be forgotten.

Here the waves of pain come again.
I taste the salt from my tears.
All those years lost, I cry.
Time to lock the hurt back inside.

Why am I forsaken?
I am broken.
Why am I misbegotten?
I am opened.
Hold me like you used to.
No! Your dead to be forgotten.

Epitaph from Within
By Tommie Stovall

Here lies my heart and soul.
Left in ruin by a dead world.
These mortals have desroyed the love in me
and rended my tranquility.

My heart and soul
walks in a dead world
destroyed the love in me
leaving nothing of me

Here lies my heart and soul.
Left silent by a sick world.
These mortals have broken me
and left trash of my art.

My heart and soul
walks in a dead world
Destroyed, the love of me
Leaving nothing of me

Here lies my heart and soul.
Left inept by an ignorant world.
These mortals have no hope with me
and sunder my sensebility.

My heart and soul
walks in a dead world
Destroyed, the love of me
Leaving nothing of me

Here lies my heart and soul.
Left to wrot in an infertal world.
These mortals have isolated me
and razed its creativity.

My heart and soul
walks in a dead world
Dstroyed, the love of me
Leaving nothing of me.

Here lies my heart and soul.
A grave for it in a stone world.
These mortals have this testament of me
and have given no final sanctity.

My heart and soul
walks in a dead world
Destroyed, the love of me
Leaving nothing of me
