The Tomb
The Tomb – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a table tomb. Whilst a lot of the stonework is eroded, it is obvious this was quite an ornate tomb in its time. 


Sitting forlornly by the tomb of her beloved
Shedding tear of sorrow and regret
It was her burden for ever and eternity

People often become aware of a presence
When they visited this historical place
A wave of sadness often engulfed them

No one was able to find out the story
Of how these lovers were separated by betrayal
Now he was at peace, moved on to a better place

While she still sits and mourns her cowardice

  1. In the murder mystery series I am reading about Victorian England in the 1800’s… there are too many widows.
    Too often women didn’t have a say in much when they were married. But were given some respite from that when they had means in their widowhood. That and the attitude to not let others burdens add to their own.
