The Sun Has Set On Our Love

The moon has settled in on us, as the sun has gone away The night we thought we’d never see, has come to replace the day The love we thought would live forever is breathing its last breath It fought to live for quite some time but now has nothing left Our diminished love will live its days in darkness and in night A place beleaguered by the cold without the warmth of light We had our chance at timeless love, but alas its fate was met Our time in love is at an end as the sun has sadly set Written in Texas -JUL 2014

So sad, but that is what makes it beautiful, MC! I hope that by now the chill of lost love has ben replaced by the warmth of a new one! ~ Regards // paul

This is a brevity-gem and I absolutely love it. Using as few words as possible to capture an emotion in poetry form is a favorite challenge of mine and you have done it beautiful. Each line is emotionally touching and poetically riveting. 7 and a FAV (nice to meet you, can't recall if we've crossed paths before) ... CayCay

Thanks CayCay! This one, I'm afraid, was born out of necessity... I felt compelled to write the antithesis of my poem "The Sun Will Never Set On Our Love". It took a while to find the right words. Thanks so much for reading and commenting. And, maybe, but I don't believe we have, but I'm happy to have found your work CayCay. MC

It's sad when love is gone but it's better to move on! Marquis I enjoyed this gem from your poetic pen and rate it a "7!" Have a happy Fourth of July! Pandita
