An oldy but goody

         The torpor of wish

A wish lost that has not come true.
A yearn some time ago I brewed.
One that smarts heavy, on my heart,
One impossible, to impart.

She abides, lives and tenants care,
Ambivalent of my hearts affair,
Has no idea of my revere.
And never glows when I am near.

My love has flown but has not sown.
And I am forlorn and alone.
But I would rise and worship anew,
If she would glimmer, one small clue.

Not in the sounds that words parole,
But eye and glance to move a soul.
This the torpor of wish, that flew.
The only want, I wished come true.

But time has host, a toast you see.
And I'm fare drained of sand in me.

Hey Sy-

What is she nuts? LOL.... just kidding... don't know what to say except i identified with this one... a lot... and... speak up! Words written or spoken are much appreciated when mind reading tricks don't work... hehe... just trying to relay some insight from a woman's point of view.

Loved your poem. Really. Hope my comments are well taken...  

I love that phrase, btw... "oldy but goody"... describes my goals in life....

Thanks for the read, Sy.

But I thank you for the sweet comment. *L*

Seymour-
Hard to envision a soul that could
remain ambivalent with you.
But something must be right ...
58 years !
A 'torpor of wish' to ponder.

You write so well.
I enjoy.

I shall not doubt the words you send
Love and life, there is so much that must depend
Not to say that I don't understand
But cupidís arrow still descended once upon a time
Love does gets wiser in do time.
Sad your poem has filled the air
I canít believe itís what you bear
Iím sure youíre down and off guard
Because she just forgot your ďValentineĒ Card.
See I try to make you smile
All things heal in time and while.
Thank you for such piece of good poetry
And I feel for ďHEĒ


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

"Not in the sounds that words parole,
But eye and glance to move a soul."

Your poetic skill, Sy, is enormously moving and speaks volumes to my soul.

Some people have a mind of stone
That does not hear the meadow lark
And when you see the nighttime star
What they see is only dark
You consume the fragrance of life's flower
They feel the pollen from far away
You savor dawn's most precious hour
They plan their mission for the day
My mate reads nothing that I write
And I have always asked the why
But I believe you cannot turn
A stone into a butterfly

Helmut,
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment.
Meadow,
Thank you for recognizing the choice two lines in the poem. *L*
Corinne,
I can only send back, one hell of a thank you
Elizabeth,
What you said seems true,
You can't turn stone into a butterfly.
Love Sy
