Lost Love

Lost Love

A Poem by Archangel Gabriel
"

My second Ghazal

"

Lost Love

If love is not to be then I am lost

for the nape of your soft neck beckons

till my heart bursts and my soul is afire.

The distance between us seems short

and yet it yawns as a gulf,

spreading across the face of this once succulent earth.

I stand transfixed by the lure of your beauty,

the sweet softness of your caress,

the fullness of your breasts.

And I, am caught in time,

where all my dreams are you,

but you drift on a zephyr that steals you away.

I stand and watch that wind as it mocks me,

smirks at its power to keep you

in the grip of its deception.

And my tears flow salty

in burning rivers of regret.

My heart is crushed in hot and jagged pain

as I realise I will never be your John.

Many thanks Sharonlee
Oh boy do I know what this feels like. Once many years ago and now once again it appears love will be swept away on a strong wind, bearing it where I cannot follow. I am living the heartache of this piece. For me, the last line would read; "as I realize I will never again be yours." Things have a habit if slipping through our fingers when we aren't paying attention...

But, to the poem, it is well crafted and heartfelt. Well done.

Oh I got that. I was just personalizing in a way that wouldn't show my real name.
Hmm do you really want to be her JOHN, not such an intimate connection there.

for the nape of your soft neck beckons
till my heart bursts and my soul is afire.

That's definitely a devoted lover Gabriel. Stunning read, albeit bittersweet.

This is so sweet, and sad, and telling. My heart breaks for a person in such pain. I hope it will get easier with the passage of time.
