Forbidden Veil (poem)

I wandered down a lonely trail

The moon forgot so long ago

And memories had ceased to flow

Amid forbidden veil


And there I saw what couldn’t be

A maiden I had met somewhere

Now lost forever in her stare

And now it beckoned me


So here I sat it seemed so right

She sang a song of yesterday

When kisses weren’t so far away

And lovers found a place to stray

Where hearts in love could safely stay

Believing dreams would come their way

Which promised more than words could say

Yet drifting shadows did betray

Instead of Joy I found dismay

The song had sewn my plight


I dare not stay I couldn’t leave

Confusion reigned from all around

Her song became a wall of sound

Which offered no reprieve


I shouted hoping she would hear

But all I found was me instead

With all these reasons in my head

Why she’s no longer near

I guess that the trail was dark (no moonlight) and no memories. Until he met her - then it lit up. She was lost until she found him and she sang the song about yesterday. I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

Aw, so forlorn looking there in that photo and in your poem ... is it a wedding veil, I wonder. If so, that would be a lonely road to go down if in love with that kind of forbidden love for sure.

Love that song so much ...only words can do the trick!

It seems your readers interpret this differently from each other. I see tortured grief overcoming this lover's being. I'd be curious to know how this poem speaks to you, Martin.
