The one

Tonight,motionless is my sleep

Without a thought of you
passing my mind

and if the wafting wind breathes
its soft breeze upon my cheek
I will not remember you

Like the rattling sound of crickets 
on the branch of Spring
you had come and gone

Now,your shadow blocks
the silver of my moon no more

Like a woodpecker in its last sonata
you stole my music

but I am learning how to dance
without your song

Fluttering snowflakes 
covered my hair
with false proposals
as forget~ me-not petals
 scattered by my side-walk

Here I am now...

a black swan pirhouetting
into a fresh dream

There  He is...

a splash in calm beauty
within my  esmerald stream

--- and two hearts beat in silence - -

Tonight,motionless is my sleep

without a thought of you 
passing my mind

and if  the soft wind breathes 
its breeze upon my cheek

I will not remember you

Inspired by Elton John`s song~The

    I love this, the entire poem has a gorgeous dreamlike quality to it, emphasized by the free floating lines - well written, my little leanne o'sullivan :)

    Immensely deep & powerful! One might wonder if this writing is a paradox: Not thinking or remembering them, yet they're mentioned in your lines, so you had to think of them, right? But, it's not a paradox. It's a reminder to self that the heart may never forget the "feeling" or "outcome", but the cause of said feelings are no longer in the equation. Damn brilliant.

    Fantastic poem. It builds all the way through. Each stanza is more stunning than the previous one.
