Poetry: “Wide Awake”

Wide Awake               by: Rose Clifford

At night she lays wide awake,

grieving for the splendor of her youth,

crown with a busy sadness-

broken nostalgic memories confused.

 

She ached for the time gone and lost,

used and abused with someone else.

Now she is the only one to blame,

burdened with no absolutes.
