Ghost Lover

Poetic words
In the heat of love
Dreaming of tomorrows truth
I fall onto a hopeless dream

By the emptiness
Of rumbled bed sheets
The song birds singing on window sills
As the sun rises yet again and again and again
Coffee cup filled with tears, loneliness fills the years

Hi Aurore. This is really a fine poem. It really "touched" me. By-the-way, don't you mean "rumpled" rather than "rumbled" in the 2nd verse?

Sadness is a cross we all bare from time to time, they are symbols of our trust in love. Good one Aurore.

Hello, Aurore. Your last line is a complete poem unto itself.

This tugs at the heart, dear. Very heart wrenching. When actions don't back up words, heartache ensues. Sending hugs

I hate to say this is a sad poem. I have many ideas for sad poems but everyone urges me to write happy ones. Yet I love sad poems. This free verse poem is typical and endearing.

Beautifully written but oh so sad dear. I hope the ghost would disappear and happiness fill its place...a favorite
