April: National Poetry Month

And to celebrate, a poem:

Untitled

The sky cries,

and trees bow their heads

in quiet prayer

The earth, she shakes with anger

and roars in pain,

But what do I care,

What do I care

My heart, broken, cries out, cries out

but no one hears

So let the sky cry

until her tears wash away

And my pleas, mere whispers

to all, go unheard

So let the trees bow

and break in despair

Just as my body lies crumpled,

broken,

and bare

Why shouldn’t the earth tremble,

and in my same fate share

If the sun no longer shines,

overcome by night’s fears

Would anyone notice,

Would anyone care

If the stars fall from the heavens

and not one witness their sins

For aren’t all our hearts broken

Carried away by the wind

Scattered in pieces, scattered in pain

Does anyone care

Does anyone care
