Best Craig Cornish Poems

+ Fav Poet


Oh haunting specter, pass and quell my fears,
Though peaceful doth my heart appear to be,
I’ll dwell behind my wishful hopeful tears
Until at last you’re here to rest with me.
When last we bade farewell o’re by the shore
A promise passed your lips and filled your eyes.
I held within the solemn wish you swore
And feigned a cheerful smile and waved goodbye.
Now jarred awake by fearful haunting dreams
To see your specter there amongst the stars,
Where from your breast a blinding bright light streams,
A path to pull me close though from afar.
    Dear ship of life before you slip away,
    Stop time forever on this fateful day.

    Well done, nice and smooth. I know it's a weird compliment, but hey, sometimes it's difficult to get sonnets to flow well.
