Still Remember This

Still Remember This

A Poem by barleygirl
"

loosely reminiscent of song "As Time Goes By" from movie Casablanca

"

Still remember this: your kiss is such a kiss
the rapture in your eyes still makes me sigh
every doleful day I miss our wisp of bliss.

Your comet magnifies my every midnight sky
most nights I am gone ‘til way past dawn
fundamental butterfly beckons goodbye.

The way you captivate is never out of date
I turn limp as a ragdoll when you enthrall
my fancy recreates a mate denied by fate.

So, we bid adieu ‘til our next rendezvous
my long-lost lover slips beyond my covers
a visage that I pursue because I love you.

if this isn't someone in love then i don't know what is. nothing better than being in love, counting the seconds 'til that next 'rendezvous'. i liked the strong, reaffirming ending ... :)

Your comet magnifies my every midnight sky
most nights I am gone ‘til way past dawn
fundamental butterfly beckons goodbye.

It sure is the perfect reminiscent. I really felt like I was reading someone who's new in romance and head over heels in love. More power to you. You are one of the best out here.

This is my favorite line. I wish I could share this with someone that was once dear to me. 💖

Completely agree with this...
So, we still remember this,
Though our memories go amiss
And that's the reason why
Those fundamental things
In our memories still apply
As time goes by.
And though our memories are amiss
We still write poems like this
And that's the reason why,
We still get by.

Come back Cole....Margie and I are fans... we need you!!

(((Hugs))) Norm

This is the most romantic piece I've read in a good while. You've always had great style. I hope you spark that romantic flame. Better to write of love than shame. Some regret and some forget. I'm in that first pile. Your words are sweetest nectar and I am a collector, like a hummingbird but really just a poetry nerd. I wish I could send secret love words. I wish I could send you rain to drain away the past. But I would hate to extinguish that lingering ember of love.

Yes . . . .
A very softly romantic poem and I felt like the poet is in a dream-like state, fantasizing about an elusive yet amazing lover. The comet signifies his impact. The poem felt wistful as this love was missed by fate and now visits only in dreams. Yet fantasy feels so close to reality. Especially in the dark hours. This was a beautiful read.

This gave me the vibes of the first love. It's very magical. They say that you never forget your first love if it was a beautiful memory for you.

Ah, the one who got away is always the one we dream of....because the hardships of life never were in the picture with him/her. So much regret and so longing in this one, Margi. I really like the artwork you chose to accompany your words too. Great job. Lydi***
