Haunted Memories

The cold wind blows against two warm hearts Leading one heart astray, the other one broken Don't ask the reason why As answers echo a truth unspoken Where once there was a beautiful garden bursting into life Now lies barren ground cold and heavy with strife Dreams escaping into thin air like clouds passing in the sky Reaching to hold them captive By never saying goodbye The wounded spirit floats in circles round upon her wings Carrying heaviness in her heart to the pain that she brings Forever jaded by seeing love feign through a stained glass windowpane Pray one day a sweetened breeze Comes and calms these haunted memories

    Haunting is definitely the word!!! I felt as if the air in the room grew thinner as I read your submission. As for the form, all but the last verse would be characterized as a quatrain. The last verse is in the form of a couplet so I guess you could say that it is in essence a hybrid. Regardless of the form the work is superb and as I have found with many of your poems, pulls the reader headlong into the feelings and emotions of the page. Scott...
