To Romance 2: A Farewell

A Poem by Kenilo Kent

To Romance 2: A Farewell
This threnody was written on the passing away of a friendship soo passionate and as sensitive as an æolian harp to the wind was there love in the throbing of the heartbeats. There is a sad twist in this poesie of three best friends hoplessly tangled up in love's bitter triangle.

Alas! Alas! My days are pale!
What romance seized my sweet slumber!
O youth, O love, O joy, Oh- wail!
What sleepless nights! Cold december!

Twitter, little birdy twitter,
And melt this heart stoned cold. Alas!
Twitter still, let this heart utter,
Adieu! Adieu! O bonnie lass!

Stay! Stay! Blow me a soulful air!
And chant to me any a spell,
The heart must not wither its sail!
Yet adieu, O love, all things dear!

How sweet must be a rhapsody!
Two friends true and one bonnie lass.
What depth must be a threnody!
To fill these hearts stoned cold. Alas!

Adieu! Adieu! My days are gone!
Oh mirror true, show what I am!
I gazed through the stars but in vain.
Alas! Alas! Lone here I moan.

If you would ask me, 'a boy and a girl can never be best friends forever', love comes and mends or ruins everything. 
To my friends Amo, Athu and me!

Adieu! Adieu! My days are gone

Wow this is good. And interesting how you worded everything. And you are right in most aspects of girls and guys being best of friends. But there are the rare cases where there are a guy and a girl who remain friends for a long time without that interference.

Lovely poetry for a sad subject, I feel this one in my bones...I know this feeling well.

A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
I love the style you write in, the language you use. It can be a bit distracting, but it also makes it a more interesting read, for me.

That is really good. I really like the emotional tone, it feels like a very dramatic goodbye. Goodbye to love, goodbye to friendship... I love the use of formal language and adieu instead of just goodbye. Awesome! Thanks for sharing :)
