The Death of Love
~First Knight~

I've walked into this field alone,
A field that has no end.
A walk of life one could say,
With wounds that will not mend.

I walk across this field of dirt,
A field no longer green.
Dead now is the grass that grew,
And no flowers I have seen.

The birds no longer sing above,
No water in the stream.
No sweetness in the air I smell,
I fear I've lost my dream.

No stars to shine to light the night,
Or a moon to fill the void.
No bright lit sun to calm the storm,
My life just seems destroyed.

Acceptance now  I bow my head,
As death will bring rebirth.
Returning now from which I came,
As dust upon the earth.



 There are two kinds of pedestrians...the quick and the dead. Drive it like you stole it.

Hopefully this was just a passing mood.

This is excellent David, and quite close to how I feel right now.   Keep up the good work, and keep your head high, so you will see the next opportunity when it comes.

 I am not a poet, I am merely one who speaks in emotion

First_Knight I can remember a time when I felt exactly exactly, exactly, the way you have described in the "Death of Love".  It is a sad and lonely place to be.  It is the end of the world.  But I am fine now and if you are living in this world right now I assure you everything will be allright.  You will get stronger and you will see the truth about love....it is still alive...and it will be waiting for you to embrace it again.  The best movie I have ever seen in my life...Magnolia is playing now if you are interested in an emotional journey.  A beautiful blending of feelings and music.  Take care.  This is a beautiful poem full of emotions.   James

First_Knight, a very sad, yet a  very beautiful poem.

 What comes from the heart goes to the heart.

David, as well as this poem is written, I find it very sad   I wonder if love ever really dies?
