    dotsSHE MELTEDdots

    She melted
    in my arms

    And all I could do
    was hold her
    console her
    While tears stumbled down
    her cheeks
    tracing her lines of sorrow

    She melted
    as she told me how much
    she loved him
    "He was a good man"
    "The alcohol changed him"
    "What will my son do without a father"
    was all i could hear
    As I caught her

    Words left me stranded
    As i held her close
    to my chest
    to my heart
    Her melting soul
    poured into me
    And all i did was
    cry and

    Together we cried
    As I lulled her by my side
    Thinking of the love
    she lost
    The pain she feels
    The hurt thats taken

    On my chest
    Her head lie
    And all I could do
    was hold her
    As she melted

      This is very well done! Bravo!

    It is deeply touching in its images and flow.

    I am drug into the story with just a hint of what happened. This focuses on the feelings. I think great poetry does that.

    Good job!

      I loved this peice. Hits very close to home, I can easily relate. I love how you used the word melted, it brings up such good descrption. Makes it more vivid and also very dramatic. Fantastic work, keep it up :)

      This was tragic and beautiful. A true testament to your aunt's sorrow and your compassion. It was touching and well-written. I love the title and it's repetition through-out the piece. Thanks for sharing and best wishes to your aunt.

      Oh, this so captures a tragic, shared grief. (I mean too many people go thru this) And what can you do? Just hold her & cry. This is really powerful. Even the structure visually reminds me of tears falling. Simple and true & beautiful

      wow. I love the whole thing, but the last line was my favorite, it fit so perfectly. I cant relate but it was written so well that I almost felt both of your pain. I cried, thats how you know its good. I think thats what good poetry does...it touches people. Its so sad...how easy it is to hurt somebody and to be hurt. I really hope everything works out. I hear it gets better eventually.

      Lost Sheep really said everything I wanted to say...great minds think alike. I loved this piece. It was painful, but very loving (as pain usually is) I enjoyed it very very much. Be well

      I liked this one a lot. It's amazing how many poems are written about romance, romantic love and breakups and how few are written about other kinds of love. There are two kinds of love here; the love of a woman for now departed (deceased?) husband and, closer to us, the love of a friend. The love of a friend that can't "fix" the situation, but can merely hold her and cry with her.

    Great work,
