Love in the garden

I stand in the "Shade"
Locked within the darkness of a "Forever Masquerade"
I search for an "Everlasting Candle"
"Why is it" that my search seems futile
My fingers grope in the darkness, thankfully "Night Melds with Day"
My eyes witness "Seasons of Life and Death"
"Blood of Birth" flows through my veins
"Self-induced Fatality: A New Kind of Drug"
Injected into yesterday's want
"Societal Dream" for me a nightmare
"My Heart She Slumbers" I wait for her for she is you
I sit here in our garden, "Speaking to Your Statue"
The monument of us covered with "Vines That Bind"
"Sestina in The World of Worm"
I watch you rise from the earth
Once again we will ride
Together we will take the reins
We will experience
"Love on a Black Horse"
As we ride towards our heaven


There is a talented new poet named Sam Beloved, I took all the titles from 
Sam's posted poems and wrote this piece. I hope you enjoy what I came up
with. Be sure to check out Sam's poems, you won't be disappointed.

    It was very deserved; he is quite the talent. And so is the author of this thought provoker; hello Rich ;) Your words never cease to reach me; I cannot say that often. I am glad to say it to you.

    ok, now I will look at this seriously. you did a great job getting the titles to fit the poem, Richard. One day a man here did a poem using titles of some of MY stuff. I went to see his poetry and he had done like 8 or 9 other poems based on other poets' titles. It's a fun thing to do, isn't it? I think I even did it once or twice!! thanks so much for your wonderful words on see this girl. Luv, Andrea

    Is his last name pronounced with two syllables or three? hahaha. A little joke on myself for why I failed in a recent contest!

    A truly beautiful poem, Richard. And, what a stunning tribute, and an introduction this is for a new poet!...I wrote something similar, with titles from my own poems, it was actually for a contest a few months ago.

    No, I will check it out. I tend to stay away from the blogs due to some of the conflict. Thanks for letting me know.
