Poem: Bittersweet

Hello readers,
Happy Sunday!!
I think you should know by now how much I like doing collaborations with other poets. There’s just something about two people coming together to create a world completely out of the ordinary just by putting words together and weaving them around each other’s imagination, that speaks to me and I can never get enough.
This one is a collaboration with Jamie of Jamie’s Blog (Please check out his blog. He’s awesome) and I hope you enjoy it.
Jamie’s Blog:
Time will tell
A host of stories
A tale or two of worries
Some I assure are very true as well
SmalleeWrites:
Time will tell
Tales lost and found
Of people spinning round and round
All of them doing their best to avoid hell
Jamie’s Blog:
I have heard
A few times, never believed
No one has their stories outlived
Only told when they’re dead.
SmalleeWrites:
I have heard
Of a few men fallen prematurely
No one knew or even cared to, really
Until they were already long dead.
Jamie’s Blog:
Who then told these stories
Could it be the living, do you know?
Could they be so bold
As to relay the message from Hades?
SmalleeWrites:
Who then told these stories?
It couldn’t be the already fallen
Because they don’t have the power
To break as much as the living does.
Jamie’s Blog:
These stories only sadden
But In my heart of hearts I know
That where ever I go, be it to or fro
I’d be telling it to like it really happened
SmalleeWrites:
These stories only sadden
But deep down it strengthens
With the knowledge that
Nobody can tell them better than the living.
Jamie’s Blog:
Ignorance is bliss
I’m sure that’s what they say
While we find safety from the stories in times of disarray
The living will almost never find peace
SmalleeWrites:
The truth is bitter
I’m sure we’ve all had a taste
But we find comfort in the knowledge that
Just like with bitter leaf,
The after taste is somewhat sweet.
