The poem(s) are below...




Life cast a shadow on my downcast eyes,
as dreams became a tale of darkened dust.
Imparting charms destroyed by woeful lies
when deepest senses played with eager lust.
Adrift in hapless search of hidden why’s
my trust in love by endless fate encrust,
to seal the scars with wails of silent cries
and burning flames of raging love unjust.
As if a dagger through my heart is thrust
a dream so real is chained in loves demise,
Alone without a warm embrace I must
confront the lonely days of secret sighs.

From ashen dust a life of gold will soar,
with fading dusk my lustrous fate restore.

    Lots to take in here Teppo in this fabulous sophisticated sonnet. The last two lines are definitely my favourite. Hoping to see you again some time.

    A great poem of "lost love" and yet, "hope floats". Keep the faith, Teppo.

    Excellent. Something about the Sonnet genre that distills emotions and the story. I have grown quite fond of the sonnet. You did this so well and boy do I see all the hours of work, editing, and rewrites here... no small task. I love how you left us with hope on the other side.

    Makes me think of the phoenix rising from the flames; in this case the phoenix has died a very depressed death; no doubt glad to be a golden rising phoenix. Well penned.

    We all can journey through darkness sometimes, but at dawn’s first light, a ray of hope will shine through. Nicely penned sonnet.
