Lachrymose Love

Lachrymose Love

A Poem by Doodley
"

Keats whispered in my ear.

"
For thee is there no more tender sight,
Than to stand upon the precipice of love at night,
With beating heart held in wistful hands,
And stare across seas to thy beloved's lands?

Oh! To be bathed in hope from the luminous light,
That reflects off the waves, so forever bright!
As ye affix thy gaze on a wandering star,
And follow its journey to thy love from afar!

As ye stand on the threshold of the place thee belong,
The heart in thy hands sings its systolic song,
And its cries of its longing traverse infinite seas,
Guided by the caress of the night mistress breeze.

It is a Lachrymose Love that it sends off to thou,
Across oceans and glaciers and mountain tear snow,
To settle in the chambers of the place it calls home,
To sleep there forever, and never to roam.

And upon the lonely precipice ye stand there and wait,
For a diastolic love tune that will seal thy fate,
Shall that heart grow its own wings and soar into sky?,
Or fade into silence, to shrivel and die?

Doodley Doodley Doodley.. This one is so sick! I am feeling the vibe of this piece, especially at the moment. Well written. Well said. This longing and this realization of emotion is stated with a lot of depth and power. In case you haven't noticed, (Knives put away, I SWEAR~!) ...power poetry is my fave. If it's not powerful... it's not poetry!!
Good job Doodley.

I do certainly think that Keats whispered in your ear Doodley with this romantic delight and when I read it out loud it reminded me of "When we too parted in silence and tears", a favourite Keats poem of mine. Not for the words, but for the rhythm. His spirit was certainly near by when you penned this. Great stuff.

This poem is such a fine blend of classic and modern, dear Doodley. I appreciate the way medical terminology of the heart is used so deftly alongside old world, romantic language. Your rhyming skills never cease to enthrall me. The feeling of wistful loneliness running through the poem is so palpable and touches the reader. It draws one to that precipice in the night. You are missed sorely by all your fans. ⚘

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Nancy. I appreciate the comment.
I'm sure Keats would have been impressed with this writing. To be able to put feelings into poetry in this way takes study, as well as talents and gifts not many possess.

Impressive writing.

Pardon me as I fan myself. I accidentally swooned! My god, but I do love your romantic notions. I truly cannot put into words how wonderful and fragrant I find this piece. I have read it now five times, and each time, I enjoy it even more. You, my dear friend, have a knack for turning verse into the most delectable chocolate concoction in the world. Every world properly savored, I now return to mu regularly scheduled hum-drum day with a heavy sigh and wistful glance back at such magical, romantical words.

I liked it. :-)

A lot.

You might be one of Keats' rebirths. Amazingly penned! Hell, I didn't even know the meaning of lachrymose xD. Vocabulary was...literally other-worldly. Rhyming was awesome. And the story...ooh...ethereal. As always, loved it!!
PS: Don't worry about that I.O.U. You're not indebted. Lol. Your poems are next-level. Can't help but read them.
