Stolen Moments

He clutched the string to his heart
His soul screamed with silent rage
Wings of steel bound 
Moments gone forever stolen
Within the confines of his mind
He tries to calm what remains 
of this tormented soul
In the flames of autumn
He threads in solemn solitude
His spirit cries out to the dark skies
Far into the deepening night
He awaits the rising dawn
Another day will allow
him to feel again
Guide him down the road
Moments gone forever stolen
Never to come back again.

    Dear Phyl, I love the way you build the suspense in a Hitchcock-like manner and then leave us guessing about his fate at the end. Awesome, my friend! Hope you and your family are doing well. I'm missing Joyce, who broke her arm, and Paul Callus too. Sending hugs to you, Carolyn

    Hello Phyllis... quite a sad forsaken love poem Phyllis. I dare say many readers will relate to this from sometime in their lives - Lindsay

    wow, this is the best of the three new ones of yours I am seeing. Sorry I missed the haiku set which I see was posted over a few weeks ago. So good to see you here and get your lovely comments, Phyllis.
