Love's Memory

The mixture of three poems creating a poetry soup in glorious splayed light beneath a glowing sensual sunset, the purest passion of vibrant realms rose when a wish was wished to tenderly close feathered eyelids when the souls of eyes have kissed allowing the ravenous breath to breathe the softest mist when trembling fingers touched the face of love in bliss perhaps these memories are mere drops dripping from love lost that now splash upon the earthen floor of time locked in the mind swept clean by shadows sweeping with brooms made from lonely nights leaving nothing but streetlamp dreams shattered by unfulfilled wishes that may have seemed real in a twilight's dance from another time even so, your memory burns like an eternal flame lit long ago that now lights my memory like luminous fireflies as my days become another red thread on the horizon I will remember you as the soft light that brought romantic comfort to the darkness you are the memory inlaid until death colored by the scattered drops from love lost that float endlessly in the covering mist of loneliness that surrounds the haunting face that is yours drifting through the empty nights in the eyes of my dreams you are the flaming star that crossed the night sky etching a trail, burned into the eyes leaving a warm light that vanished in the dark with every wish and their sense of awe that came with love's shared perfection 7/13/18

" I will remember you..." the best line in the whole poem. and the way you centered it make it more dramatic. I read this a few times and each time I read something more to enlighten me. beautifully expressed sweet Frederic. Thank you for your participation and congratulations on your top placement. :)-luloo

Frederick, the way you speak of a woman. Who she is and how she affects. You are a seasoned man. You know life is not all fairy tails and sometimes romance is not heaven.. it's simply that she was "able to bring romantic comfort to the darkness" This write is brilliantly beautiful because it's written on a canvas of authenticity!

Some stunning imagery in this. I was wondering what you meant by forming a poetry soup. Did you take three poems you already wrote and meld them? This is so beautiful.
