The Pearl

The Pearl

A Poem by MsJewel
"

a romantic little scribble

"

photgraph compliments of pinterest

 

~~~

When dreams lie pale in the soft light

of the dim moon and as it swirls

a silhouette in liquid night

lonely and lost, a tender pearl

 

The darkness seeps into my soul

an echo now where his embrace

once lit the sky, now black as coal

with shadows I wish to replace


But as I turn to look away

with just a blink, it fills my eyes
a tiny spark beckons to stay

and flashes in the midnight skies

In graceful dance, or so it seems

a memory of the delight

of a bright moon and silver beams

that shimmered as we watched the night

The glow of then, another time

the perfect fit, the sweetest charms
when heart to heart and intertwined
I melted in the warmest arms

 

The soft vision of a romance

that lingers still, his gentle kiss

his tender touch, as moonbeams danced

on a canvas of amethyst


But that was oh so long ago

this velvet night, this love struck girl
Where is he now, he’ll never know
that in my heart, he’s still the pearl

~~~

But that was oh so long ago
this velvet night, this love struck girl
Where is he now, he'll never know
that in my heart, he's still the pearl -- these lines really followed to the heart for me.

I almost hate that I can relate to this piece, as it dreges up thoughts of things that have been lost; little treasures that were possibly not treasured enough in their time. Beautifully written, my friend.

Beautifully-penned poem, Julie. The above stanza is my favorite. It makes an apt ending to such a romantic heartache. ;)

Thank you Pryde :) Julie
like the blood-letting of words flowing
through corridors of lofty peaks,
pooling in a mirror loch that reflects
the cracking of a limitless sky.

Romance tinged with the heaviness of melancholy. stunning yet forlorn.

This is a perfectly luminous poem. You used the image of the pearl and the imagery that followed with great skill and beauty.

When dreams lie pale in the soft light
of the dim moon and as it swirls
a silhouette in liquid night
lonely and lost, a tender pearl

I am thrilled you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for your nice comment :) Julie
As a sensitive kind of guy, this really spoke to me about my last relationship. Only I'm the male wondering about the woman. It's nice to have other people relate to things the same way. I especially liked the rhyming and imagery a whole lot. Nice work.
