Last Poem Written--By Tammy Manikas--United States

Last Poem Written

Memories and visions trapped in her head.
Spreading the feeling she's already dead.
Words would come without any strain.
Allowing her to write through the pain.
Within the ink she will forever hide.
Trying to be free of the darkness inside.
Knowing her destiny is to be alone and lost.
The agony in her words came at a cost.
Most of her life she's been treated unkind.
No longer able the words to find.
Not one feeling of love was ever displayed.
Many times in life she has been betrayed.
Unable to explain her life's tale.
Deciding to live behind the veil.
Her final thoughts in these lines.
Putting down her pen one last time.
