Song Of The Lost Lover (poem)

Dedicated to the lovers of the dark poem

Beyond the frozen moments of her pain

There by the swollen river of her tears

As sorrow’s shroud now steal each sweet refrain

It feeds upon the sadness which it hears


Beyond remorse in valleys of her fears

Where heart has lost its reason to sustain

And shadows of an ending never nears

It breeds the hopeless fields whose flowers drain


Was it the dream who swore to hold her tight

Whose promises mere words toward her dismay


Was it the song which scented her delight

Then cast despair to lead her soul astray


Drift on fair princess whispered through her night

Tomorrow’s dawn is miseries away

The song of the lost lover is very dark indeed. Haunting melody too.

Very sad . . . truly makes one feel the sadness of the heart that has lost love.

Voted up +++ and sharing

I stand mouth agape in awe of your orchestrated ministry of words!

'It breeds the hopeless field whose flowers drain.'

Indeed! Mhatter! Indeed! Peace. Kawi.

Lost love is one thing, until replaced by a new love. Expertly done, Martin.
