Haunted Questions

I wonder if
You still exist
Is your spirit
Still in pain
Do you feel
The least remorse
For leaving her
Without a father
Can you see
The woman she is
In spite of
What you did
Or is there
Nothing but darkness
In your afterlife


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – remorse

    Sorry, for the little rant. Your little poem inspired a bit of anger. So, I guess what I am saying is good poem. After all a poet should be making his/her reader FEEL something.

    1. Thanks for your kind words and your rant. I agree… you have to be there, but both physically and mentally. My ex was an alcoholic so he often was “gone”
