Her Poem

Her Poem

A Poem by Max Meunier

time and circumstance
forces holding us at bay
notions of our union resting
harmony turns dissonant

when i listen to the tones
the shrill cries of passing stars
i try in vain to leap aboard
scarred from having so misjudged
the heights that i am not allowed
in spite of my heart’s bursting

but i have felt the shards of piercing
work their way into my song
words imbued that shape the softened
strings that set this soul to brood

in the offset glow of winter
swept away by undertow
one day we will walk while tethered
in the hour of silent prose

A amazing poem. Gentle, honest and kind flow of emotions.
"in the offset glow of winter
swept away by undertow
one day we will walk while tethered
in the hour of silent prose"
The above closing lines. A feel of a Leonard Cohen song. Thank you Max for sharing the amazing poetry.

I really enjoyed this. It's so dark and magical. Great job!! I love the lines, "i try in vain to leap aboard
scarred from having so misjudged
the heights that i am not allowed
in spite of my heart’s bursting"
