Taming the clouds of lonesomeness

Taming the clouds of lonesomeness

A Poem by Relic

Image result for Cowboy Moon



When I'd found 
the warmth of your waist replaced
            by sunrise ribbons
                                      on the bed 

I felt no more alive 
              than cut grass 
                       pushed aside 
                                          by daisies...

My color 
      had drained
rains of worry 
                 fell untamed.

But for you 
      I'd rope the moon
             or lasso long sunsets.

I'd break the clouds of loneliness 
                      to saddle
                                   joyful bliss.

Content to know 
        I'd tied the reins
              of love around your heart.

Willing to ride
             the extra mile
                          it takes to get you home.

Thank you very much, Kay.
'Taming the clouds of lonesomeness'
Relic,
first of all the above picture says so much. I see the inspiration in the sunset's crimson longing and the moon calling the hope of love. It's very cool to see the old fashioned look of a cowboy actually lassoing the moon. You used some fun word play...first line 'the warmth of your waist replaced by sunrise ribbons' and line three, 'my color had drained rains of worry fell untamed' I find it fun and interesting to read people's very early stuff just to see how a start was made in writing.
This was lovely!
Blessings,
Kathy

I appreciate your review, Kathy. Thank you.
This is just so, lovingly rendered. So simple, so touching. That said, your vocabulary is impressively displayed, and page presentation is very inviting to the reader. Well penned, my friend.

Wow, this is stunning, the effortless flow of emotion and heartfelt sentiments are really emotively woven...the longing and yearning and emptiness are palpable and the beauty shining through the in-betweens is far reaching...wonderful piece!

If I were seeking to woo a woman's heart, this is a poem that I would sure as hell recite to her beneath the full moon, having memorized each line in anticipation of melting her heart ... Beautifully done ...
