Dust to Dust

Dust to Dust

A Poem by Aethereal
"

About the beginning and end of a love affair.

"

Dust to Dust

 

 

Twirling specks of dust

dance inside our view

with that wanderlust

that once held us too.

 

Pirouette,

play roulette

till sunset.

 

Once a lovely gust,

powerful and true,

joined the two of us

into something new.

 

A strong jet

may beget

a duet.

 

Underneath our crust,

our devotions grew.

Wonder, love, and trust

filled us through and through.

 

Once we met,

our kismet

was reset.

 

Finally we were thrust

into a hot flue

that made us combust

into residue.

 

This upset

made us sweat,

and forget.

The short life of dust particles. Personally, I like things cool. My relationship just might stand a chance. Another very good write.

Amazing use of words. The short statements create story and situation. I like the poem. Made me wish to know more. I felt a journey that was alive once and is missed. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

Thanks for your review, raj24! All relationships are ephemeral.
From dust you are to dust thou shall return- is meant only for the body not soul.That was the spiritual aspect but i like how you have blended this into a love affair ; a gust of emotions,trapped in the whirlwind of love but at last you are cruelly brought back to the reality. Thrusted into the hot flue you drop back to the reality- which leaves ou drained of all emotions.Your words create a sandstorm around me.. Nice write. :)

True, we're usually insane enough to take that avenue again.
Oh my this had me going fast I am really taken back by the seducing aspect of your writing is as if once you start reading it makes you skip and bounce all the way to the end vibrantly and with quick feet.
And the notion of unity is powerfull and the recreation part and even the meeting part like atoms colliding into an explosion of sorts.

And I thought it was going to have something to do with Ashes to ashes .....

Thankyou

All of the up's and down's of an affair are displayed well here. Personally, "Pirouette,
play roulette till sunset." hit home for me. Wow.
