Legs that can’t fly Heart that can’t love Lips dry Kisses under go a rye I am blind Only seeing within the past lens Only holding on to memories That wont last Your sweet smile fades away As I whispered in my deepest of dreams Now I live inside insane mad thoughts You have moved on I am not longer in your way My love lingered No more can I sway Your beauty My dreams I have lost directions Flowers never come in May Waves’ roll to shore Angels play in the tempest sea They know not love was not for me Blankets keep the royal lovers warm I left to winters charm Coldness is my home Chilled thoughts haunt my very bones Broken and all alone Forlorn Battles yet fought Over me grave Besot, tears still drop Underneath Poetic flowers bloom

This is beautiful in it's sadness, really enjoyed this deep heartfelt write Arthur. I think you're right, aren't all poets broken somehow? Didn't Richard write about broken people? Both sooo good.

Authur, Sad x sad. Each word is a teardrop and each line is a river flowing out of a broken heart. Poetic pain cuts like a saber until...I Am Broken. My best to you, chuck

ah but its so cathartic to write, thus why the poet laments

This made my eyes get misty somehow dear Arturo...I could feel myself there right beside you broken and alone...Till Oh that last line..'Poetic Flowers Bloom' ..That is all you...Hope ..Determination even when the dream seems to be drying up...And petals will bloom in all the colors of the rainbow after the rain...You 'll see.A favourite..For one of the Best poets of the world.

Sorrow leaps from the page in this poignant yet captivating piece, Arthur...it's raw in its emotion...I especially love the hopeful ending. Hugs, Rhonda

Not so hopeful, but I can see how it can be read both ways!

Kintsugi art, the best art in the world... Broken art, glued together with liquid gold. To indicate that the glued result is even better and more beautiful than the original art.

Arthur this is such a sad piece. It' s always difficult when someone we love moves on. It can hurt like hell however, it opens up many opportunities that one may never had imagined. As always this is a great write!!

I would change "underneath" to "Above" either way this is an intriguing piece.

Very sad yet convincing write Arthur, love the ending where your poetic teardrops bloom and create beauty instead of tragedy for the reader. Your rhyme is always of the highest order and a joy to read no matter what the subjectivity. All the best and may your brilliant pen enlighten us again. A favorite of course!

Arthur, this is so well written and expressed. I hope the writing will help with how you are feeling. I can feel it as I read it. I know what loneliness is like. Hurt and pain too. Take care. Thanks for sharing. ! :)

If you were broken, you couldn't write beautiful poems like this one, so full of feelings, sad and warm the same time. Poetry, my friend.
