Was There (poem)

Was there the couple met to dance

And for this while their time to chance

To taste the fruits of pure romance

Surrender all for lovers’ trance

-

And all around the world was theirs

Flirtatious worries idle cares

Endless kisses enduring stares

So much ignited by their flares

-

Soon life was there to meet their dance

Invented worries made up cares

Unnoticed change amid their stares

Unknowingly lost to new trance

-

Then world of confusion was theirs

Just sorrow and tears would they chance

Left only heartbreak to romance

Their passions now arguments’ flares

-

But there in a sleep or a trance

They dreamt of a distant romance

Was there they had nothing to chance

Was there the couple met to dance

Mhatter, another gem, flowing beautifully with passion, pain, loss and yearning. I haven't written a serious poem for sometime, but when I read yours, I feel the need to start again.

Thank you Martin, A Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to you.

A story in this poem that leaves us wondering about the conclusion. Was it a dream romance or did they mend ways and fall back in love again?

Martin, that seems to be the way both of my marriages went!
