A Poem by Helena






I sit weeping under the blue wrap of a new dawn

my dreams of you left with the fading light

Where do all lover’s stars go when Ra’s glaring

reality hits like a shooting comet plunging my world

into uncertainties bedrock?


Does the opal moon and diamond stars now

fashion a place for us in the cosmos of new dreams?


The warmth of the sun no longer cheers me

butterflies have turned into moths

beating against the window of my despair


Do we paint the sky with stars again with rainbow

wishes, or shiver as the flames dowse our

passion with our falling tear drops


If its my destiny is to dwell without you

just know that I glimpsed heaven for one short time

here on earth when your sweet soul caressed mine


We met in the sweetest garden of eternities time

lovers and soul mates ordained by the God’s

but separated by a cruel twist of fate.


Tell me how am I to live without your love?

This poem meshes with your striking image so well -- a well of tears, a well of yearning, a well of bittersweet regret.

There is such fullness to your elegant rendering of this sad emotion that it resurrects from downbeat to the beauty of watching a teardrop rich as rain flow in slow motion down a roseate cheek.

No one wants such pain of the heart, yet it etches one's capacity to love even deeper, if that heart can yet remain open to the blossoming blessing of your blue sunrise misting into a dew-drop dawn of fresh tomorrows.

The silver lining in the dark cloud is that Love remains, belongs to no single person, and thus awaits your rebirth.

Helena, this is so sad. I remember asking myself the same question at one time. I can truly relate to all that you wrote here. And, you wrote it beautifully.

Wow so sentimental and heartbreaking, knowing the love you have can't be shared because of things beyond your control... your really cut deep into your emotions with this piece... and the ending question really caps it off with a sting.
