A Marker Left

A Marker Left elegy

Sign of what once may be left
Breath taken deeply denial of death

Presence of grace to have a place to hide
As family leaves fall temperatures will rise

Accepting the passing of a goodbye
For moments of inscription
Left for grieving eyes

Stone slate curved shape
Squared surface engraved face
Measuring space words at a limit

Who? When? Memories of them
Beginning and an ending
Of a life once lived
Name and date

Cemetery gates
Marker forever statue in ground
In remembrance clouded
Ashes to ashes dust to dust
Confined coffin entombed lost love

A marker
A place
For a person
That once was

Family
A Face
Remembering the hugs

A marker to celebrate
A person that is
Still capable of being
A person that gives

Living life after
A marker to represent
A person angelic family left

Profile photo of Kristina Anne-Paula Whitmore
I am a single twenty-seven year old that finally is finding a route towards insightful and healthy expression. I have always loved nature and animals as well as observing the beauty of the stars at night. Some things that I love are singing and expressing my personality. I am just a woman who has always enjoyed being imaginative with literature. Which is why I love writing and dream to graduate from college one day. What inspires me are instant moments in nature that spark imagery within my mind. I have just recently begun trusting to open up in a written form about my past after much inward reflection and outward neglection. It has taken time to care enough about my own thought processes and writing feelings down again. I am thankful I am finding a wonderful way of reminding myself that I am capable of artistic value even though I have had confidence issues. Thanks for taking the time to read about me.

A sign of what once may be left Within the hedge line written Through the dark feeling of weight lifted A presence of grace to have a place to hide In stone carved out many names to find The times

All That Is Left Of Me

All That Is Left Of Me long poem

All that is left of me Is an aching soul. A psalm of the sunset Ready to decay. All that is left of me Is a modern whore. A manipulative God covering the way. All that is left of me
