Love in Mono

Love in Mono

A Poem by Light




Tell me
why I'm jealous 
of papers and pen
the fading drops of rain 
joyously enjoying
a moment of warmth 
over the lustful leafs 
before they fall
drenching my ground 
with sad rhythms
of my pulsing heart 
being crushed away
by the cruel winds

Of words that make 
a half of me
I've written You the years
filled Your palms with 
promised eternity 
and brought the Sun
down to Your feet 
to rise, to shine 
to let me glow
in Your luxurious eyes

and I've kept a part
buried within my loneliness
and swallowed the pride 
from high the pain 
spoke to me 
of aiming again
that rising Sun

Tell me
why I'm jealous of
Your memories 
of the past 
and all those tiny drops
that have caressed  
Your face
gently
those emotions that have 
lured Your inner 
and made You
You
those sensations that have 
struck and awaken You 
to be 
You

Why I'm crying now 
why my heart is… 
roughly aching now 
is it that I still love You
or that I'm reminded of 
the woman I will never be…

Truly a poem and a half and a good un at that, quite beautiful and containing so many emotions...Hinting at joy and more than of regret....Super dooper say's I.....

Funny not everyone is familiar with jealousy and in that respect, I'm not sure whether I am one of the lucky one's or not.....If you ever get the chance and its still in print, grab yourself a copy of the Harrad Experiment by Robert Rimmer......All Good Things, N

Ah me, love gone wrong can truly be a dagger to the heart. Dear Light The teardrops and pain in your eloquent, delicate words are raw and deeply felt. The last verse filled with pathos and self-deprecation. Madam Butterfly envisioned. So very sad. And so very beautiful.

You are very welcome my friend!
' Why I'm crying now ~ why my heart is… ~ roughly aching now ~ is it that I still love You ~ or that I'm reminded of ~ the woman I will never be…'

Dear goodness that touches home.. words to mark a woman.. or man, forever. So many people feel the blade when it comes to love, the true kind, not the make-believe prettiness that seems to flaot around. Your words are dripping reality, so finely laid. Beautiful sad.

many thanks dear Galadriel for Your time reading and kind review, I'm happy to see You can relate :)
Sometimes in life there are just no answers to the inquiry of why certain things are the way they are. We must then take responsibility in what must be done - to continue on as things are or to let go and move forward. Your words are heartfelt and relatable to many. Keep writing Light.

There is a sadness, a silence that lingers in every relationship, however close. There are places one cannot have access to and spaces one cannot touch, which perhaps someone else can...

Tell me
why I'm jealous of
Your memories
of the past
and all those tiny drops
that have caressed
Your face
gently

Beautifully written, deep and compelling thoughts. And a picture so lovely, enhancing the reading experience.
