Mistress of dusk, mistress of dawn

Mistress of dusk, mistress of dawn

A Poem by M.Kilani

Here I find myself now 
Alone, cold and bored 
As I describe some of what I saw 
I chant her, poetry to the lonesome road 

She came one night 
When I lost my white blind light 
Not boredom, sympathy nor guilt 
Only a world that we have built 

She entered my garden of souls 
The one and only to dwell my walls 
To rest on an empty throne 
Mistress of dusk, mistress of dawn 

We were old enough to realize 
That we were too young to tell any lies 
As we laughed at our broken dreams 
It was harder than it always seems 

We danced in the shadows of words 
With beams of light we build three worlds 
Never thought we would depart 
Has an end what has a start 

We shared smokes, coffee and wine 
I can't label it but it was divine 
Like a breeze of aromatic cool air 
Soothing my breath and waving her hair 

No more words I can utter 
For I fear the words and the shadows they make 
As my lonesome dawn breaks 
Those shadows without her will break and shutter

We danced in the shadows of words
With beams of light we build three worlds
Never thought we would depart
Has an end what has a start.

beautifully write your past to future and you have created a very loneliness but memorial atmosphere. Love this.

'As my lonesome dawn breaks
Those shadows without her will break and shutter"
Always a pleasure to read your words. The poem told a sad story. The above lines told the truth. We can become cold and lonely when we learn. We are alone. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
