Our Love That Once Rivaled Illuminating Sun

Our Love That Once Rivaled Illuminating Sun

Was your light dead, its glow destroyed by dark
Your eyes blinded, and our romance cast aside:
Twas this, dark thought of loss, that I have died,
That you dared to treat our great love as a lark,
In your longing heart that my soul did deep entwine
Each one of its chambers I filled with my all,
Yet such abundance could not prevent our fall
Now upon its poison we both must feed and dine.
Our love that once rivaled illuminating sun,
Gardens set in paradise, in their fullest bloom:
We unaware, evil rests not until it brings on doom,
To slayeth love, all its treasures thus be undone,
Woe to us, our time was but a brief, dying dream,--
Our sweet songs vanishing as glistening of dew,--
Not enough, such true words said, "darling, I love you",
Dark of Fate's weeping gasp, birthed its dying scheme.

This could be why darkness caresses the night, as love and its light has faded. I have never thought about it happening in this way. Your words hold depth and meaning. This is beautiful, yet sad at the same time. ~ Brandy

You are very welcome my dear friend. Yes, I hold every word close. Feeling each emotion, so deeply. The heart of the poet. ~ Brandy

Thank you my friend. I see that you are a poet that thinks deep and searches for the message/meaning in a poet's heart when composing his or her poetry.

A very mournful lament for lost love and, perhaps, the transience of life itself. Great poetry, my friend.

Thank you my friend. Such occurs daily around the world. Lost love is one of Fate's best and most used curses.
