Free Verse -Sad poems - always make me cry

A chapter in the book Blessed is the Fragile Heart

Dear Delia

by Just2Write

Dear Delia, where does our sadness lie?
Is it entombed in pity like the last breath of summer,
or does it lay in the shallows of a winter pond
from whence all warmth and hope have fled;
life's colours bled to black,
and cold and dread are like dead
rainbows that no one ever sees?

I look into the wishing well,
and wishing well,
I hope that sorrow
will soon depart and set me free.
I pray for redemption and resurrection.
I dream of no more tears, dear Delia -
Where my humble heart, my soulful heart
will cry no more, and the winds of woe
will one day blow elsewhere.
Depression put his sights on me
and like an avalanche of winter's snow
has buried me completely.
Can dreams replace the doom of fate?
Perhaps, dear Delia -
I only know for me tomorrow is
as elusive as the nebulous night winds
that negate my life and breathe me in
and expel my depleted soul.

Sadness has overcome us all at one time or another. Either caused by a relative or close friend's death or from the girl or guy that broke our heart or just life in general. We all handle situations differently, some good, some bad. This contest gives us the ability to explore this. Your poem can also play into other emotions that are common to writing like this such as anger or depression.
