Ashen echoes of passionate sorrows
cling to memories I once thought insane.
In my youth I saw endless tomorrows,
now I see only the days filled with pain.
Blessed by rage no mere mortal can contain
with righteous anger I defy the world.
To release my Beast and give him free rein,
the flag of my rapture must be unfurled.
Against jagged fact must my sanity be hurled.

I will disgorge each lesson I have learned,
for the lessons life taught made me sour.
By those lessons' value I have been burned,
though their pain fills me with awesome power.
From under shadowed brows my eyes glower,
they flicker with sadness trapped in my mind.
I but wait for God's appointed hour,
as I suffer the life He has designed.
Knowing His plan simply makes me feel more maligned.

Held fast by despair I touched the divine,
when first I beheld her heaven-sent rhyme.
As my heart was her's so would her's be mine,
'twas only a matter of fate and time.
Her touch awoke me from nightmares sublime,
to dreams eclipsed by her reality.
The bells of madness will no longer chime,
held silent by her own morality.
She enchants me with sensuality.

Earthly pain will tether no more my soul,
for loving her has filled my empty heart.
When lost in her voice I truly feel whole,
even when time and space keep us apart.
Romance and passion are consummate art,
by that measure she is a masterpiece.
With the uncertainty it does impart,
my heart is enamoured of her caprice.
She envelops me within an embrace of peace.

In the game of life I am a player,
yet she has removed my need for the game.
She opens my soul layer by layer,
to soothe the Beast that my madness became.
My passion surges when I hear her name,
for it gives me good reason to rejoice.
My love is a candle and hers the flame,
it lights our way by mutual choice.
Such magical mystery is found in one voice.

Dream, this is absolutle perfection.  Very intimately describes the feelings I know you hold for ~One Voice~ but I can so deeply relate to my relationship with Genny.  Wonderful work.  Definately one of your best.

Dream Evil -

This is one of the most beautiful pieces I've read.  Your love flows through it like rains on a scorched corn field ... quenching the thirst.

May you always hear ~one voice~
Peace

This is absolute perfection. . .

The words are so powerful and eloquent. . .

I can only echo the words of the others here. . . and all it takes is "One Voice". . .

I would have to call this poem superb, it has emotion, strength, message, and it flowed like a raging river in the beginning only to end in a calm stream of thought. May your holidays draw you closer to those who mean the most in your life, and may calmness light the dark tunnels so the beauty of life can shine through for you.

Scott, passionate writer that you are...feeling in the depths being it love or be it in bitterness.

My hope and prayer is you continue the journey towards the former.

Weaving words with brightness to illuminate is much better, in my humble opinion, than the bitter, broken, dark, brooding side.

I know, you tend towards the dark.....

Positively exquisite -- your passion fairly flows through this, and it is well-written besides.  You are both a master and a lover, my dark friend.  My best wishes to the both of you.

This was beautifully written Scott. The torment and pace of this piece in the beginning and the calmness of the end. You did an amazing job with this one. May you and yours enjoy the joy of the season. Merry Christmas my friend.

Scott she is what was Heaven sent my friend.
Not your pain and suffering. I'm really glad that you two have found eachother. For miracles never stop happening, she has really touched you deep inside. That shows so very clearly!  Wonderful writing and expression! God bless you both!

This is brilliantly written, Scott...the flow, the form, but mostly, the feeling. You remind me of the Tin Man...thinking there is no heart in there, and all along, it beats to the sound of ~one voice~.  May it always do so. Bravo, dear one. A superb poem.

Lady deVine, 'tis called a Spenserian stanza.

Sven, she is indeed all it took.  

Lost Dreamer, Julie, thank you very much.

Skyfyre of that I have had no doubts.  

Marilyn, tori, and Terri, there is balance in all things even me.

Thank you much Seymour.  

WhtDove, that she is!

Caroline you have nailed it dead to rights.

Dark Angel 'twas my pleasure.  


 Now and forever, my heart hears ~one voice~.

Set every threadbare sail-
