Poetry and Musings

The woman by the tree mourns

She mourns the way her husband treated her

She has been in this marriage way too long

Her skin burns and aches, almost as her heart

The draping leaves camouflage her sorrow

People don’t know she’s hurting

Because all they see is the Weeping Willow

Crying for her
