My Bittersweet Symphony

My Bittersweet Symphony

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*
"

A gathering of thoughts I've had lately.

"

Melodic thoughts whisper softly,

Frozen is my heart in the dead of winter.

Waiting for just one more summer of a lifetime

That waits for me....somewhere.

 

I have traveled the world,

Listening to the autumn's breeze fluttering.

Comforting me through the lonely seasons

As I search for a place to lie my head.

 

I remember life can leave a bitter taste

Lingering on the tip of your tongue.

You can only manage so much,

Until your heart feels like it's about burst in agony.

 

Love plays like a symphony,

Sometimes ending in a series of sour notes.

Wherever temptation may lead,

Just to feel wanted and yearned for.

 

Wrapped around the devil's finger

My heart barbed wired and bleeding.

His sweet serenades leave me thinking

I'm a gift living in his curse.

Brilliant but the last stanza really hit home for me - Great piece of work

Wrapped around the devil's finger
My heart barbed wired and bleeding.
His sweet serenades leave me thinking
I'm a gift living in his curse.

Life is certainly a mixed bag.. you win some, you loose some. Its a journey that's always taken on lone behest.. others are just acquaintances.... This is a superb write Anna... it has all the elements of the making of a classic.... one of your best work.. Very well done :)

Life certainly has its beautiful tunes, then again it can get off key now and again, that so just march to the beat of your own drum and it will eventually all work out.... excellent poem.

A beautiful poem. You write like a old experience writer in this poem. Taking the reader into thoughts and travel.
'I remember life can leave a bitter taste
Lingering on the tip of your tongue. "
A strong ending to the outstanding poetry.

Wow.. Great poem, lovely imagery. Just one typo where you said 'whereever' instead of 'wherever.'
I love the first and last stanzas...
Very well written :)
