It is a sad thing when our relationships seem like they only last from sunset to sunrise. A short time to love seems even shorter when love is nonexistent...A very deep, emotional poem which I loved to read! Sad poems are the only ones that seem real to me. Great work!...Thank you for the kind comments. They are very encouraging to me! :)

This was absolutely powerful and amazing. Sometimes circumstances in our life sadden us so much we just want to sleep it all away... I thought this poem was very cleverly written, very few words but it evoked a tone of emotions inside. I am loving your lines. Gottah read some more of yours. Always, Laura

The element of Time, haha, you can escape it. I guess many moons passed,as my native american ancestors would say, between these solar phenomena, but we always remember the details. It was a sunrise, and a sunset, the perfect summation of irony. Nice poem.

What a beauty and pathos you have blended in this sweet little write Tanka my friend. “A long lost tear falls, Converts into sleeping pills" What a way to express the pains of heart. The write is more than beautiful. These lines tell the depths of your writing skills. Great write and a well deserving win. Congrats PD.
