Empty air wafts between us
As silence lingers gently
Our eyes are slowly wandering
Wanting simply not to see.

Whispers once soul-consuming
Now in the distance sigh
In a starlit net of tears
I wonder if I should even try.

You touch me with a silken kiss
But absent is your heart
And I remember love within
When we both played the part.

In horizons far away from here
Perhaps our fire burns
But we will not travel there
And find the love we yearn.

Instead we lightly smile
As our spirits soar apart
And cry among the lost and lonely
While distant grows our hearts.

WoW...what a wonderful first post. Very touching and I felt a little sad when reading this.

How very well expressed...and how acutely sad this is. I, too, look forward to reading more of your work. Thank you for sharing this one.

Welcome to Passions. . .

This was truly a sad poem. . . I would say to not just give up so soon. . . there are some loves that are worth trying again. . . if there is something between you, try to work it out. . .

It seems as though you had a very wonderful love. . . don't let that go, unless you've tried everything. . .

Twilight~
This is a beautifully stated piece.
The beauty of your thoughts almost overshadows the sadness.
Welcome to Passion's.

*blushing*  Thank you all so very much for the lovely replies and the gracious welcomes....although they aren't needed, because I've been here a while.  hmmm, now who am I?     But once again, I thank you all.

*SMILING CAUSE I THINK I KNOW*

either way...awesome poem...
and if you know know me, then you know I relate all to well...
your poem was laced exquisitely with sadness and loss..but no anger..very nice.
take care, jm

 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

Oh,   But I will say that I LOVE this poem. My fave part being:

"Whispers once soul-consuming
Now in the distance sigh"


Because it's so poetically smooth and because I have been here before

Beautiful poetry.
All else I can say is when it seems to be slipping away, get a firm grip on it, and yank it back with as much fury of love as you can muster. Nothing slips away unless we loosen our grip and let it seep through. We are stronger than we think, and anything is possible.


 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

LOL at Christopher!  Knew I wasn't new, eh?  I'm sure a good deal of you know who I am anyway.  I only picked a new name to hide this from a few people you can say..so, it served it's purpose.  

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments!  

btw, a special thank you to you, Temptress. I really needed to hear that.  I need to hang on, to keep him close to me.  And I can do that.  *puts on her strong face and forces a smile*
