The late day introspection
dims, on these, the solitary
hours, when images would
rise above the flatline
of the nightsky

Nowhere as vibrant, yet
soft echos sustain  
within the natural order
as days rewind

May I take your hand
not so much with satin
glove, nor the offer of
a surrogate rose, but with
a psalm of truth
as I express

you are not missed

but I confess
I miss the poetry

the courting of the green
the rain that plays reveille
on countless country roads
and wherever else our
spirits roamed

I miss the grand revival
at the stoic hours, when
our pens collaborated, the ink
most potent with the nightengale's
reminder

the need for validation
to feel again the rapture
does exist, yet strangely
for the most part, in lieu
of carnal knowledge, I long instead
to simply lose myself
within the poet's rhyme.

Interesting theme. Glad to be rid of the so-and-so, but wishes to retain something, maybe the only thing, he had of value. His rhyme. I really like this poem. Very much. Yep. It works.

Sometimes a poem strikes just the right cord, EmmaRose. Love this poem and the thought between the lines. I so understand it.

Love this, It's a passion
for you to rhyme and enjoy poetry.
And you do it so well.

Truly enjoyed.

JL

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.

I loved this; the magic of poetry.  Very nice
