My Cause of Heartache

I'm embraced by a mist of gentle rain while my sad heart clings to a whit of hope that some day you will love me, once again, or I'd dare not wonder how I should cope. Your letter's still sealed in its envelope. My cold fingers fumble, quiver and shake, hands tremble to open and my lips quake. I fear to read in your words, what I dread that would be the cause for my heart to ache. With scarcely a breath, your message I read... "Today I heard a song and thought of you. Truth is, you've been on my mind for a while. When I heard the lyrics to 'Misty Blue,' I closed my eyes; on my lips was a smile. I don't have your number, so couldn't dial, but I'd like to see you, if that's okay. I never stopped loving you, by the way. If your heart will give me a second chance, I'll come to you, darling, without delay, to stoke the embers of love and romance." September 20, 2020 Dizain Poetry Contest Sponsor: Emile Pinet

Congratulations Jenna! Your poem has placed "Second" in my PoetrySoup contest. Due to the exacting syllable counts and perfect rhyme requirements of this form, this contest was very tough to judge, well done my friend, Emile.

Regina, you're very welcome, and I will always privately alert a poet to something they might have missed without bringing it to public attention. Your acknowledgement tells me a lot about you. Thank you for your kind remarks on my poetry.
