You are my longest night

You are the shortest day
but longest night
within a memory
of my four seasons

Every cell in my body
remembers you

It remembers
Your amorous glance
Your ardent touch
Your effervescent kiss

and even your last whisper

a careless whisper
which sickened my thought
and pained me with grief

Every breath from my lungs
remembers your absence

How can I  forget it?

I live with it
I die within it
It surrounds my existence

Your absence - Bitter !  Dark!
darker than death itself

You-Solstizio d'inverno
Where is your promise
the promise of new beginning?
Where is the light of what was pure?

I know you!

I know you enough to know
you still feel me in your bones

I know you enough to know
you bury me in your soul

Then you dig...
you dig crazily
beneath poured dusk
which fills the hourglass
beyond your veins

You dig deep
to find me again
You find me,You hold me

I know you !

I know you enough to know
You hold me to your heart

I know you!

I know you enough to know
I am still your life-line

Your love goes as far as stars
as distant as God
and undiscovered orbits

But was that yesterday's illusion?

For how long should my little candle 
shine?
How dim it glows now

Low is the voice which calls the sun
to rebirth prisms from droplets'dew
Weak are these footprints
which mark our path on moonlit 
snow

I should stop calling

I should stop walking

Stop believing

Stop wanting, needing

Maybe the Sun sank
in the stillness of a crimson horizon
in the solitude of the tide
never to dawn in these eyes again

Soltizio d' inverno
Winter solstice
You are my coldest  verse of silence
My longest night of rain.

This fiction poem was inspired by a 
poem about
Winter Solistice

    EXCELLENT WORK... I love all of it, but these "you dig crazily beneath poured dusk which fills the hourglass beyond your veins" and "Low is the voice which calls the sun to rebirth prisms from droplets'dew Weak are these footprints which mark our path on moonlit snow" are show stoppers. Hope all is well...TAH

    You are a breath of fresh air here, Charma, , just like Autumn. I see this was inspired by a winter solstice poem. What a beautiful way to be inspired.
