Between Clouds and the Water

between clouds and the water

I can hear the clouds
they sizzle with electricity
they float but drag down
too much for them to see

between clouds and the water

a man hitting his wife
a lie to be spoken
a child left behind
it's bigger than the ocean

between clouds and the water

all the crying children
hearts are broken
the water spilling down
ready to fill the ocean

between clouds and the water

tears ready to fall
to crack a soul open
water running down
they're filling the ocean

  1. So much happened between the two elements. Lovely poem.

  2. So much is written beneath the lines. So deep this is.

  3. Wow felt it��

  4. I can feel the emotion in this. It is on the verge of triggering my PTSD is what I mean.

    Somber, but very powerful Morgan.

  5. Another richly emotional piece, Morgan!

  6. This one went straight to my heart. Sad, poignant, beautiful.
