Creeping shadow, looming close
Lengthen in dying light,
Bring on the darkness so verbose
Remove her from my sight.
Tis 15 years now man and boy
Since I have felt her touch
And still am plauged by haunting ploy
And withered cold by such.
Bring calmness to my broken heart
And peace unto my soul
And drive her memory far apart
From that which makes me whole.
Forgive I cannot, forget I will not
While still a breath I draw,
But darkness somehow fills the pot
And keeps away the gnaw.
Her flaxen hair and ivory smile,
Her skin of purest alabaster,
Will plauge me here all the while
And their memory I can't master.
But the darkness seems to bring relief
From her form and visage now,
And somehow from her I find repreave
And can be alone somehow.

 Knowlege tempered by wisdom...Wisdom tamed by youth.

Very deep here......and done with such passion in words.  Well Done

 It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Wow Robert, I don't know what this story is about, but it's very deep and moving...You painted your pain vividly.  I think I'll reread this to see if I can see through it better.  Your depths sometime leave me in awe.  Very well done!
Sometimes I just close my eyes to find that darkness you speak of.  It does help...
