About This Poem

I made your laugh


The blooms wore out in fading light;
opaque the molecules of air,
and that continuum brought night,
returning beasts and men to lair.

The faded blooms transmit in blur,
defined on sepia to last,
a phase unreal to incur
engraved our words on soul's mold cast.

Chrysanthemums became dark shades;
perfumed the night in minds to nest,
You laughed; My entity erewhile evades
to be night solitude's best guest.

Neglected was the feast of ne'er
- and passing years augment the count,
I made your laugh my solemn flare,
and builder of a lone surmount.

This longing turned my pride to be,
a reason to avoid the fair
invited guest and cedar tree
while void in front absorbed my stare.

    I can relate to the solemn sound of silence that you described here. Loneliness can definitely leave one surrounded by darkness. This poem was very deep and emotional. A fantastic piece of work! I am also adding this one to my favorites!...My poem "Lonely Soul" has a very similar theme to this one.

    So much to ponder about in this poem...somehow made me feel how dark solitude can be almost like death itself..Tnks for sharing.
