           Blank Pages

I sit alone in my bedroom
Dim as days late afternoon
I’ve took up pen, to you to write
Oh, how I wish I had a light
A bright spark in my mind to fill
The pages you may yet read still
I’m trying hard to explain
I hope you get this letter Jane

To begin I know not where
At blank pages I do stare
In the gloom I see your face
And know that I cannot replace
The moment that did bring on rift
With excuse, expensive gift
I need words, simple, plain
I hope you get this letter Jane

But will the words that do sound right
Come forward like approaching night
From my heart I need to pour
How much you, I still adore
To tell of love that in me burns
And how my being for you yearns
The words won’t glitter in my brain
I hope you get this letter Jane

In brightness of a sunny day
You’d hear the words I try to say
I want you Jane, to be mine
From now until the end of time
Within my ever darkening mind
The words I seek I cannot find
I thought if we could start again
I hope you get this letter Jane

A friend of mine has reported
By another you’ve been courted
Arrangements, they have all been planned
And on the morn, you take his hand
The sun goes down to night falls bid
In darkness all my words are hid
They hide in shadows of my pain
I hope you get this letter Jane

I know that you are not to blame
I’d hoped you’d get this letter….  Jane

    ok, Richard, I am waiting for your nonet! I am sure glad you liked mine because I saw some really great ones here and didn't feel I measured up to some that I saw.

    Thanks Rick, I'm late in responding, been busy, pleased you enjoyed this, your comments are a joy and do inspire me.

    Great poem, sad, but great. Is there really a Jane in your life, or did you make her up. Somwtimes things are not meant to be. Smile and be happy. If she don't want you - you don't need her.... Lucilla

    Seal Avatar Richard D Seal Date: 10/17/2013 8:26:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    There was once Lucy, over forty years ago, I'm over her now lol, but right sometimes it just isn't meant to be. Thanks for your comment

    My Dear Mr Seal, take care! This poem shows a depth to that witty BRIT exterior that is rather alarming. You want people to know that under all that teasing and sarcasm beats a heart??? Hmmmmmmm.......Very touching write. Jane....Give me her address...I will have a word with her...She should have used telepathy and fallen into your arms without that silly note!

    Oh my, you mean I've gone and blown my cover haha. Who knows what might have been Eileen, sometimes.... sometimes it just slips away

    I found myself thinking of this poem yesterday, especially that refrain "I hope you get this letter Jane" and that final couplet! I had to come back and read again. :)

    Awww, Richard, a work of fiction I hope? I don't like Jane for doing this to you. A big, warm, fat hug to you. Good poetry, my friend. Licia :-)

    Thank you Becca, I rarely write anything so personal, but now and then eh, we live and learn
  1. Date: 10/13/2013 8:45:00 AM

    gosh, if each stanza had fewer line, you would have written a kyrielle sonnet! Very nice one, my friend. Is/was there really a Jane? Glad you liked choco mania. Maybe PD will too?

    Seal Avatar Richard D Seal Date: 10/13/2013 7:45:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I don't know a lot about forms Petal, well, not poetry forms haha, Dunno if PDs into chocolate but if she is, she'll munch on that poem yours with delight. Was there? A whole nother story. (still kicking himself)
