What Is Loss?

I resent
What loss represents
I resent
What great loss presents

So what’s the fuss about loss?

Waiting!
Debating!
Contemplating!

What is loss?
Something you care about
Taken away from you by force
Creating total unforgivable chaos

Thinking!
Blinking!
Seeking!

What is loss
It is a minus instead of a plus
Hence the unmistakable fuss
Death and sickness build up great grief
Loss brings despair instead of relief
And in loss itself I have no belief

I resent
What loss represents
I resent
What great loss presents

Loss! An inequitable cause
Thrown on you without a toss
So you become very cross
Because in your life you realize, you are never the only boss!

So great thought....I enjoyed this poem.....It was so nice........
its a very good poem! I love it
this reminds me a lot of the poem 'the lady of shallott'.. it is just beautiful
I'm looking at poems of this writer, trying to understand why they fashinate me so much
Dath is over-rated. It's certainly not like sleeping.
