Shadow of the Eve

Trails of laughter amid tears
Tales of the ancients rake pensive queers
History is but present hollowly thought
Experienced oceans of belittled naught

Swelling chest and above the eyes
That constantly gaze on high
We hear the change of the believed
Rainwater drips into the pangs of eve

Enamored upon the brink of a wind’s tide
A tapestry of the softest gold beside
It is the tip of the highest sorrow
That brings a happy tear to the morrow

Look back, but upon the wind you stay
Treasure ashes remain acceptance, gray
Leaves curling dutifully brown
As the knowing tiger lilies frown

Prison guard of the future
With a hardened face revealing today
Be present at best in an experienced face
Into the eyes that trace true pain

    An extraordinary piece, susceptible to so many interpretations. A poem to savour... once read, never forgotten. Magnificent language, graphic imagery and powerful emotions. Well constructed with free flowing verses and fine couplet rhyming. Brilliant Laura!! Best wishes, Keith

    † I Spent Roughly Four Years Amid Such Chains; Not To Mention Within A Lighter Form, Most Of A Life ? Hello Beautiful Laura, Tis Always A Gift We Believe When Finding Such Exceptionally Written Verse. There Is This Myriad In Different Pain These Hearts Yet, It All Leads Unto The Very Same Stage ? Even 'Christ' Himself, Was A Man Of Many Sorrows; Why We Ask ? My Love, Always, John
