‘Living Anguish’ and other poems

By: Michael Craig

Living Anguish

A Loss so unfair worse the life left in total despair

Silently in the night or on the busiest of days

Unrelenting this fatal pain a true love sustains

An emptiness no one can fill, the days,

since a heartbeat did still

In the depth of living anguish echo screams and cries

Unable to escape, until like you I die


Life Ever After

The physical presence is forever mourned With his passing, a new angel is born Cherished memories are love’s lasting treasures Held deep in our hearts forever together Though, no words can relieve your despair In heaven, take comfort, a new angel is there Guarding with his love. family and friends Until. life ever after and we’re joined again My wife, my love, my friend


Staring Into the Abyss

Slipping through the crack feeling like a maniac. Gather no moss this rolling stone. seeking a place to call home. No one lends a helping hand. not even to a delusional man. No lining silver can be found. in the clouds that hang around. Unable to anticipate one’s acceptance. through the pearly gates. Living on the streets in such an awful state an illness this does corroborate. While waiting for life to throw a twist I’ll just keep staring into the abyss.
