I forgot myself today
as melancholic melodies 
overwhelm each beat
of my wandering heart.

The sanctimonious sun deceives
as a bitter breeze breathes
against sullen silent surfaces.

Recycled emotions penetrate
with a repetition of deep sighs.
My spiritless soul strays, but is
happy to be lost in lyrical lament.

As the Nightingale chants its
continuous regretful resonance,
the tip of my tongue aches
to whisper your amorous name, but 
holds back knowing you can't hear.

Without your enchanted vision,
neglected eyes perish. 
Without your perfumed presence,
senses remain scentless.
Without your tender touch,
fragile petals won't blossom. 

As a cascade of sandcastle emotions
infiltrate stubborn sierra barriers.
Violent tears erupt,
demolishing hardened walls.
What used to be bitter breaths and 
spiteful sighs are now regretful cries.

Your silent goodbye still haunts
as the lips grieve for one last kiss.
I forgot myself today,
but have not forgotten your love.

The Silent One
Simple Musing

I play this song on the piano...lol Not regularly, but have before. There are so many beautiful memorable lines in this poem - I really like, "As a cascade of sandcastle emotions infiltrate stubborn sierra barriers." Wow! "I forgot myself today" Last line is deep as well, how you bring it back from it's presence in the beginning, finishing it with final thoughts. Always, Laura

Silent One, your deeply melancholic lamentations strum my heartstrings with your lyrical lost love prose. I think you excel in this form, I just adore how your thoughts unfurl emotionally line by heartfelt line. Your lovely alliteration enhances the deep feelings of your poem. The sad violin is musically stunning and adds a haunting sadness to the atmosphere of your poetic presentation. Your heartache and heartbreak is artistically and superbly expressed..

Fiction but very well expressed emotion of sadness. I particularly like the stanza that begins: without your enchanted vision and that one line: a bitter breeze breathes. Great use of alliteration there. Other great lines of images I enjoyed as well in this simple musing!!

Heartache and loss in abundance. Such emotion and imagery. Sadness and a bit of craziness written by your magic splendor. This is another great poem you have written.
