Poem: On Bitter Tides

In darkness silent
The dark lady walks
With weeping willows
As her only guide

Her black hair blowing
She quietly talks
To no one at all
Except he who died

Thoughts turn violent
Seeking her query
Who did break her heart
Buried in the tide

Tears from eyes now dried
Seeks a ghost who stalks

A bref double following an ABxC xBxC xAxC AB rhyme scheme, with five syllables per line.

Inspired by the prompt from Go Dog Go Café.
