My Rose Was Not Seasonal

My cherished one... Here I am ,alone with stone wall paper in the silence of my room. The pit-pattering raindrops upon my windowsill help me to remember, outside is cold and vacant too. Here I lay , on my dark brown couch like on other nights and many afternoons. Here I stay ,undisturbed ,with a pen in my left hand Provoked to put black ink to paper Seduced to write down unconscious thoughts Terminal thoughts and deepest aches wrapped in the echo of your absence. If only you 'd knew , my rose was not seasonal Its crimson still bleeds ,like in yesterdays , now gone. Its perfume still lingers between forgotten postcards and the impossibility of separation. Its petals once blown , still float across the boundless ocean The same ocean that moves ,that spreads breathlessly between our lands , our lips and hands, but not our hearts Nor the hundred fantasies that still reveal your footprints along my distant winding paths .
Inspired by Adele's latest song - 'Hello '

Wow, another very good poem--you have a gift for setting a mood and describing a scene in a minimum of well-crafted lines. Very lyrical and rhythmic, especially for free verse. just great..

Wonderful Charmaine ... the rose petals would find themselves continually recycled between the waves in the sea, just as it happens in life, where memories keep resurfacing ... floating back to the top at the most reflective moments. Your extended metaphor makes me ponder.

Obviously, the work of a seasoned poet. What's happened to you, happened with me, and your words resonate deeply.

An excellent heartfelt expression that's inscribed literary through geometrical version of two touching hearts but not intersect one another. A great poem my lovely friend. Clean 7 i think. My favorite poetess and poem too. Loved always,bl
