Laments of my heart

I hear the voices you once bequeathed to me Enchanting concert music in symphony of love But I left the theater before the show was over Walking all alone in the missteps of contempt, Endorsing the reticence of unspoken words. Deep in my psyche these memories now reside Where devoid of fond smiles, blossoms have dried. As I refuse to accept that I’ve lost you forever Echoes of outcry from the unsung emotions Poignantly evoke the saddest lines of discourse In conversations espousing laments of my soul, Within backstreets of mind amid chaos of thoughts Having lost directions to dreamlands of the past, For I refused the promise in winter’s goodbye And rejected fiery passions of autumnal vibes, As I squashed the dreams in flights of monarchs— Never kissing fragrant lips of doting ambrosia. Though you guided me through twilight of romance I struggled in ineptitude of lovesick night of dark— Oh, how I missed my mark beneath the northern star! As my storm keeps churning, hosting a cyclone, The rivers, once calm, have flooded my crops And gusty winds ravaged dismantling my farm And tall weeds have now occupied my sidewalks, As dissonance of our love remorsefully squalls Within indecisive nomenclature of my timid heart. September 25, 2019 Placed 1st: In the backstreets of my mind poetry contest Sponsor: Silent One Placed 3rd: Strand select C contest by Brian Strand

Oh my, the corners of the mind- moments in the heart hold so many emotions indeed. It sounds like love lingers, yet it is free like the wind- all at the same time. The heart wants to hold one, but the mind is letting go. Your thoughts truly move me. Congratulations Vijay, on winning first place. Your words belong soaring through the sky. ~ Brandy

WoW Vijay. A very poignant piece relating the sadness and regret one lives with when the love they had is not appreciated enough to be returned and so that love starves from neglect and dies. Great job here. God Bless, JB

Leaving the theater is a great metaphor for walking out on a potentially promising love relationship, Vijay. I'd like to think people like this get a second chance at love and remember how much walking away from it affected his life. Beautifully penned, Vijay. Congrats on your win in Silent One's Contest! Hugs, Carolyn
