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,
stormy rains of worry 
                 fell untamed.

But for you 
      I'd rope the moon,
             and lasso long lost 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.

yes to have that someone special is precious while loneliness tears one apart.

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 ...

No,thank you for sharing your poetic mind with unworthy eyes,my friend. :)
Breathtaking. Though I find your use of idented lines a bit redundant, I think the overall stylistic choices, with the punctuation and stanza-length consistent throughout, fit the nuances of the poem. I also like how the metaphors are elegant and a bit over-the-top without making the speaker sound overly dramatic. There's a strong atmosphere of longing and lonliness conveyed in the first stanza that seamlessly progresses throughout. The "waist replaced by sunrise ribbons" description, for both its euphonic sound and uniqueness, was my favorite. Excellent work.
