Sweet Wrath

You ask me where I’ve gone
altho I am still here in heart ~
you say it is not as it use to be,
sweet wrath tears our world apart…

how can it be, all this time spent;
in Heaven’s name, where is the love?
You ask where the love went,
ah sweet wrath, on wings of a dove…

the terror of your youth, the dying flame;
her course of action was not the same
as mine, for still here am I, your life,
still by your side, forever your wife.

Cannot you take the memory’s pain
and rid of it for sanity’s sake?
Oh sweet wrath come evening,
in the darkness I’ll lay awake…

Knowing that forever
here I will always be,
sweet wrath of thy heart
causes tender misery.

Lingering yesterdays persist,
Often bringing back sweet memories,
A few feelings though, resist,
bringing back tender miseries.

You say something's missing,
All I say is I am still here,
You feel my heart has gone cruising,
All I can feel is you are seeing elsewhere...

Beautiful poem, Sunshine...my words are too less to say how good this one is...

Regards, sudhir.


 Life is like a painting,
That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

So many don't know how to lay aside the painful memories. Perhaps they would better be able to do so if they could glimpse its effect on those around them. Excellent writing, Sunshine!
