Goodbye II

Oh the word that strikes mortal as of knife
puncture’s a wretched heart, a life in plight,
bequeathed in good faith, oh yes so rife
yet to a forlorn soul it does one smite.
Is it not that time of a lovers mind
under the moon and stars, nothing amiss,
where thoughtfulness of a heavenly kind
not the doom, gloom of an endless abyss.
So the word that disjoins is deemed to be
the ending of a friendship so extreme,
because together lovers belong, free
free of this word that loses self esteem.
Yet what to do if from this word refrain,
borrow from another “Auf Wiedersehn”?

    I feel like I have traveled back to a time of castles, knights and mystisism. I love the mood you created with your choice of language.

    Ah Harry, you bring such pathos in your verse about rejected love. I don't know of anything else that takes so much out of us with all the highs and lows. You did the whole experience justice! Love, Elizabeeth
