Take me

Take me

A Poem by Jack...

Written for "The Raven" poetry contest

"

 

 

 

Take me

 

Once upon a midnight dreary, as I ponder weak and weary

Falling as a distant star comes reaching of my heart

Knees connect with fertile soil, darkness on this hour loyal

Twilight bid its fond farewell as evening spends its start

 ~

Chilled this open field a’ rest, facing east my own confess

Silence comes in wintered thoughts a’ calling to my mind

Lone is found this majesty, a’ born mine lonely eyes to see

There upon the heavens form this beauty I do find

 ~

Reaching for your open hand, actions of an empty man

Seeking but the wisdom that shall lead me to your side

Grasping at the frosted air, evermore I long to share

In amongst these feelings glowing bright this velvet sky

 ~

Take me, oh this soul does plead, thee shall be my every need

Endless I shall cherish every vision sent above

As a light does glisten free, when your smile my heart does see

To fend this winter evening with the warmth of your sweet love

warmth, love, beauty...even though the form is the same, the first line is Poe--the lightness, the uplifting feeling of this poem is so you, Jack...

always a lover with the pen.

I just use your reviews to keep me warm Tammy. Thanks so much.
"To fend this winter evening with the warmth of your sweet love" Sometimes wishes are more beautiful than we could ever know. I'm not sure how well you did in the competition, but I think there is a strong chance with this one that an award might be in order. Well done Jack.

Thanks so much sweet Rose. Happy you enjoyed this.
If Poe simply wrote love poems without the macabre elements, it would sound like this... gorgeous flow and spot-on rhyme, your usual romantic theme with an added richness. Nicely done, Jack!
