A celebration of National Poetry Day…

A dance that could have lasted, long... Until the breaking. dawn
A dance that could have lasted, long…
Until the breaking dawn.

  Modern Unrequited Love

We met……

On the ground I once scorned.

A dance that could have lasted, long

Until the breaking dawn

A powerful kiss

Brave and full

Un-tethered emotions

Force flooding through.

 

Fervourous excitement,

A picture not seen,

A carriage awaiting

No horses to lead

Only the cry of the coachman

And the pelt of his feet

The lanterns twinkle

As we departed the scene.

 

A promise whispered

A wish never fulfilled

A passion stirred

Satisfaction never known.

 

 A song misunderstood

My creed I belong

My devotion is total

No distractions, barr one!

 

But it must end

Nothing is lost

The memories… stay,

       Glittering diamonds in the depths…

    Of a shimmering lake.
