Vapor


I am no more than vapor now
no longer finding form
No shape remains where once I lay
and kept your pillow warm

No trace, no film, no petals pressed
with sonnets in a book
No memory of embracing arms
no long and loving look

No gentle voice, no breathless moan
exists within your mind
No fragrance pulls my image back
No passion now to find

You'll not recall the autumn nights,
our lingering love expressed
My hair alive in evening's glow
spread silken 'cross your chest

And will your thoughts return to me
at daylight's last refrain?    
The answer hides within a heart  
that vapor cannot contain

I looked towards the evening sky
beyond the pale moon's light,
Saw a vapor cloud the skies
and shine with beauty bright,
On whispering winds I heard sweet song,
an ode of pure delight,
I wondered what this goddess be,
this vapor of the night.

With Each Writing That I Read Of Your`s,
You Take Another Pizza My Heart.

Another great work of art you have shared with us Meadowmuse


 Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
And the begining of a new one.

Clair
this flows so wonderfully. Another masterpiece.
Your words are the Mona Lisa in verse.

No words can reflect the feeling within this this poem.


A Song comes to mind
And I start singing to unwind
The sound echoís through the empty alley
As Iím walking along through the valley
The windows filled with light and glitter
A chilling wind that makes me shiver
I think of you to keep me warm
I wish we could walk along together arm in arm
I put my hand back into the sleeve
As I walk through the night in quiet reprieve  

(((you)))


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

Again you have captured a 'feeling'.
You do it so well.
Lovely, lady.  Lovely.

Such a beautiful poem of haunted love. You make me see it all. Your rhyming is always exquisite and essential -- not a missed beat and not an image wasted.

As always, thanks for sharing. Here's hoping someday I can take your work off a shelf lined with your books. Arrrgh, you're soooo good!
