Pillowed Grief (Etheree)



Two people

One on each side

Together…. alone

Pretense of happiness

Reality hiding…. grief

Sobbing tears drench this yawning space

Clutching its’ cold inanimate form

Loving hold….fantasy fairy dreams….SOMEDAY


Relationships in difficulties take the stress to bed, and this can be the loneliest part of the sorrow.  This was an attempt to describe the sadness associated with the lonely hours at night.

Etheree: Consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
