Confession of a Man........

Where lies the reason ......who could've
predicted the cause
Of clouds and questions on our horizon
does this new wind give you pause

The hours have grown heavy the
moments seem way too long
The melodies have left the music
does the beauty leave the song

Passion was never mine to give
mirrors .....I hate mirrors now
We were in love with the idea
of love .....yet what if love doesn't show

Poetry ....my reasons for wanderous scribing ?
simply to create a bond
Touch me now and I'll touch you.......
to carry us into the beyond

I love these lines

"The melodies have left the music

does the beauty leave the song"

This is a really awesome poem. The words are perfect and the flow is so smooth.

"We were in love with the idea of love..." this is so true for many of us. Every once in awhile it is real and that is a gift... as is your poetry.

I wish I could see the other comments but alas, I cannot. There are ten so far but all that is visible is your answer to the last. Feel free to delete this - there was no other way to let you know.

Always such a magical way with words, ahorseback; creating the image of a man painting a lifelong mural...in so few words. A lament; too. Beautiful

Hey again! had to stop by and witness the art of a great man and also thank him for sending me three new followers, appreciate it. But what is more important that you know is I appreciate your work and what you bring to hubs. You were one if not my first follower and I remember pouring over your poetry feeling my love of the sea in another.

I love how you continue to paint us such pictures in warm hues of heart. Silvergenes has already brought attention to the notion of our all being in love with the idea of love. So I will instead choose the closing lines. How we feel the wish, even need to reach out to one another and in those connections, we live...
