An Infinite Sorrow

(Solitude)

By

Carlos Lorenzo Estrada 


Lest light should lose its glimmer
In the solstice of waning day

A field of bending golden wheat
In sorrow and dismay 

Should chorus of crystal rivers
Lament into mourning dew

As all the flighty tree birds sing
A wailing song of you
 
Let time forget these moments 
Whispered yearnings of our past

In the thousand tears that followed 
Of fleeting ardor, love, and angst 

Oh requiem in twilight's autumn 
Serenade this heart to sleep 

Call to mind these memories 
Of her... these tears I weep

The amount that other poets and artists have helped me and inspired me to make some of my favorite personal writing is amazing. The flow of this piece is perfect. ‘Requiem in autumn’s twilight’. This is such a classic, gorgeous line, utterly breathtaking and aching like the rest of the poem. The pain and heart in this is beautiful and and relatable. I’m sure plenty of us wish we could just put memories in the shelves to forget about. I guess the closest thing we have is poetry. Thank you for sharing! I missed reading your work, I will be reading more. (:

Beautiful poem, the heart is so heavy of its wounds and pain, that sometimes it needs a poem and tears to free of its heaviness away into the world… the illusion that for a while it can sleep like a baby after a cry…. Oh heart, life, pain, oh love, oh memory, a gift and curse that we can’t rip apart but embrace every day

This is such beautiful writing. "Let time forget these moments, Whispered yearnings of our past..." we hope with time these are forgotten..... but sometimes they are embossed in our minds.... like set in stone... this 'heaviness' is captured beautifully in your writing.
