Poem - Eclipse

 

Love's reflection
An angelic face
A celestial body
Takes its place
Amongst the moon
And the stars
Burning your eyes
With romantic resonance
Still you look
A determined gaze
Transfixed
The invisible
Is seen
The corona
Radiates
She is Venus
For a moment
You witness

An eclipse
Of the pain
As you blink
Your heart
Lives again

Thank you Laurie,

Your comment merits its own hub for its deeply felt response to another person's work... I'm not sure I'm all that but it's very kind of you to say these things...

The imagery really crackles here, like taking a ride through outer space with angelic figures. Keep them coming, sir poet. I know you will.

Aetheria,

Yes you did! You didn't think you would get in trouble did you?

Thank you for saying that...

Oh - hope my "there is no accounting for poor judgment" remark was applied to the right comment - which was yours "if it were only that simple" when I said "what woman wouldn't melt. . ." But now I see now it might appear to be in response to the comment just above it from giselle, "Beautiful, Just Beautiful" referring to your whole poem. NO, That is excellent judgement of your work which is beautiful from any side, inside and out!

I should have clarified what I was referring to!! Now, If there was no confusion about it - then whew - but I couldn't risk it seeming to be wrongly negative!

The Suburban Poet 6 years ago from Austin, Texas Author

I didn't take it as a negative because I know you are too gracious for that... I figure you'd either remain silent or send me a private message telling me to get my dumb head straight! So don't worry about it....

We all make poor choices at times by prioritizing the wrong things and sometimes beautiful words are in fact empty promises...
