Your Crying Song

Your Crying Song

taking your disease,

and suffering longly

with this sad pain…

who knew you

were handing out freely,

those aches of shame;

your crying song

  1. Brief but powerful. This may sound weird, but the spacing used between the lines…I found it particularly moving. I’m not sure why…it just seemed to let each line resonate…or maybe hit like a punch. You still feel it afterward. "handing out freely, those aches of shame;" I think this is my favorite. It epitomizes this poem’s ability to grasp a great deal of feeling, in a concise statement. Bravo.
