Longing for London

Longing for London

A Poem by black.butterfly

I still do vividly remember
the snows of London from that dream,
maybe a distant memory in December
flowing back in a constant stream.

In this other life we were musicians,
best friends performing all night.
So young with beautiful ambitions.
Beyond reach and out of sight.

When London was asleep,
we would laugh and drink the night away
sharing secrets to keep,
never minding what frosting winds say.

There we enjoyed nice wine.
There we never worried about a thing.
There life was truly, truly fine.
There we let our voices sing.

It is really all gone,
and here I am lying in my sheets,
with an untouched coffee at dawn
dreaming of walking down those streets.

You describe an amazing place full of excitement, I like the directness of this, it evokes so much imagery

Black is black but its not real life, neither is its sex. SO its hard to feel sorrow when its over. Black is never a grip on life thats strong. But its an overwhelming presence. So one thinks: "it ought to be something!" Intensely feeling something is not living but one feels as if it ought to be living. SO its a dream on retrospect.

I enjoyed London. A lot things to do. I would understand missing the old city. I like your description. I have always like the night. The entertaining people appear with the fall of the sun into the west. A very good ending to a excellent poem.
