Melancholy Hyperbole

Poetry about longing.

Ballad of the World

Somewhere a mother
Keeps on wishing
For the touch of
Her estranged son

While somewhere he
Keeps on wondering
Why he can’t find
A woman he loves

While somewhere the girl
He abandoned
Keeps on hoping he’ll
Want her back

While somewhere a song
Finds its ending
Only to start
Once again
