~ " Au Revoir Mon Amis " ~

Updated on October 14, 2013

~ " Au Revoir " ~


I

Deceives, nay grieves, verily tears life apart,

‘Midst the guiled cloak and dagger of a cheating heart;

Manteau of revenge!, it’s a dish best served cold,

Should’st one dig earthen grave, yea, for two it would hold?

Man needs to cede love, without having to ask,

Do not show him the devil in an angel mask.

Would’st thou rip this façade, though it strikes him so hard,

To then play a true heart, to then casually discard?

There is promise, reliance, every day he draws breath,

Do not slay your new love, as you lend him your death.

To sweetly seduce, he’ll be deeply attracted;

As campaigns of amore, for him, are enacted;

Affection’s infection wilst clinch, firmly harnessed,

Though your role as a Duchess may wane, sorely tarnished.


II

Ne’er sip from the heart of a humanoid dove,

Lest she charge you with pride robed in soft fleeting love;

Woe!, she’ll fly as the condor, then’st take them away;

Raging passions of night, and the true dawn of day.

Man is valiantly challenged, to then erstwhile explain,

Why fallacious, numbed presence should leave him still sane.

Her ghost needs his thoughts to help keep her alive;

Tender feelings required, howbeit, make it still thrive.

Now’st driven to obscene, perilous baneful distraction,

Via absence of her heart’s, tender love reaction.

Lo, swain mustn’t trust his bone, flesh, marrowed blood,

To a distant flung queen, though at one time, he could.

Is she faithless? Vindictive? A chaos addictive?

Immoral or senseless? Young woman defenceless?


Exeunt.


III

Let her treacherous reign be cut short, as calescent wax from thy

Candle of romance in duress, be impressed by the signet of thine ascendancy,

And its flame, duly burn the raiment of falsehoods that were dipped in cassonades of conceit.

Remain hopeful of dawn’s, yet unshone, in a future held in the lap of the master who lived ‘fore uncreated light.

Thy soul bore witness to corruption and unholy visions; stay true to its worthy silence.

Do not breed darkened thoughts in a pool of malt, for smiles shall once again be sought by honest eyes. Mirages fade, and marriage can never disguise a 3 a.m. diaper, nor a connubial earth angel’s detached wings to append and give flight to your credit cards with swipes to fell your fiscal giant. Hold on to thy sanity, health and wealth.

The gyres of the wild blue yonder shall still tarry, day and night, so never despair, for the moonlight has never refused to shine upon any debutante, for many females may satisfy hankerings of infatuation, and quieten the nightingale with her song, whilst offering bonds of merger in conjugal wedlock.

Tragedy is the beautiful wife of unrequited love; she whipped thee for revealing thine heart, now must she save her tongue for her children. Remove your honour from the noose laid by her intrigue; divorce her and send her away; save thy breath, for she sees the truth as only a lie yet undiscovered, and one cannot reason with such broken overture. The earth shall cover her face, for not all sins go unpunished in this life, as you learn to love life yet again, to unleash angel dreams and seek the consort of vicissitude, to adorn the threshold of thine expectancy.

      Hello R Q,

      Its tragic yet so beautifully done...may be you have poured your heart as you said...."a dish best served cold..." may be...some where you have been trying not to feel...or well...rather you have been trying to feel the numbness within so much to be alive that its almost....like...." numbed presence should leave him still sane....".

      The pain can be felt with each word which....."rip this façade, though it strikes him so hard...."..ohhhh dear ....wish you may cross this phase sooner and faster. Some times we all go through some abscenece of emotions which we never understand the reasons and the length of cruelty one can inherit for what so ever is the philosophy and logic on the go..."absence of her heart’s, tender love reaction......Lo, swain mustn’t trust his bone, flesh, marrowed blood,....". And friend, you are so much more deep and intense...in here with ...

      "To then play a true heart, to then casually discard?

      There is promise, reliance, every day he draws breath,

      Do not slay your new love, as you lend him your death."

      Hope and I can only pray from afar that You recover well and recover strong enough to live and to love life. Take care

      Aw, Dear Romeos,

      From your title I thought you were saying goodbye to your friends here on HP (and you may be), but alas I see it is your heart that is attempting to say farewell for it has been cast aside by another's heart that played its tune to love, but was a façade. Oh, I hope you do take time out to heal from such wounds as you deserve the best in this life, true love. If it was not true, then it is best to know such however painful. I may be off the mark on this one (and I hope so).

      Your words speaks of immense pain, and I am so sorry.

      Blessings, love and hugs,

      Faith Reaper

      This line: "Her ghost needs his thoughts to help keep her alive;"

      is so powerful for I believe firmly that one never dies in the spiritual or worldly world as long as she or he is remembered, no matter if that memory is positive or negative. Wishing you positive thoughts that uplift and make the ghosts you no longer want to think about: dissipate.

      Sending warmth your way,

      Kim

      Once again a very thought provoking poems

      I especially love the first one. Your heart was broken but to put in words so beautiful as you have shown here will help you heal.

      What can I say, except beautiful

      I have a question, if you do not mind

      Do you speak like this in a normal conversation or do you leave it to your work.

      I would love to be able to write my poems like this, but then I guess it would not be me

      Blessings

      Skillful but so very sad. I hope your heart mends soon and leaves behind the pain. It will pass and the tommorows will be bright again.

      I love also writing quotes and what you just said to him Anna is a very good quote, not sure in which way to word your words but you really should use it as a quote in a picture

      Yes his poems are awesome, so intelligently written

      Blessings

      Dear Deergha,

      I sure hope that the recent cyclones have not affected you personally where you reside brave heart.

      Regarding your remarks; it's always a risky business opening up to another person, but I'll gladly take the risk and enter life, no matter what may ensue.

      I did recently drink from the flagon of heartbreak's bitterness, like so many have before, but she was immature, so I shouldered the result; then another so-called angel with borrowed wings chanced along the way, whom I entertained might be the one, but alas, she became overtaken by her own selfishness, on the path towards an unrealistic destination - she couldn't break that which had already suffered a great storm, yet I grieve for that which may have come to pass; it could have been so beautiful.

      Now, there is no one to write about with any degree of realism any more, but life goes on does it not, and the future should not be denied our presence.

      You are such a genuine soul Deergha, and sincerely appreciate all of your thoughtful comments of kindness.

      With Warm Regards,

      R.Q.

      Dearest Faith Reaper,

      Now how could one ever say goodbye to one such as you? Unthinkable. You are so wonderful, and thank you for your touching concern, which is so valuable.

      I despair of some people's value systems dear Faith; some folk just can't comprehend when they have it good. The easiest thing in the world would be to treat women like rubbish, but it could never be right. It grates a little when some women moan and groan for a decent man to show up in their life ( present company excluded, obviously ), then they go and find something else to complain about, as though he isn't good enough for her. I guess one cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, so time to lower the portcullis until further notice.

      Perhaps it wouldn't be out of place to send her a pointy hat for Hallowe'en ;)

      I certainly hope that you are doing well today, and your family are in fine fare, for you have helped to restore my faith in womankind again.

      Many thanks for the blessings and hugs, which should be returned in multitude to you this peaceful evening.

      With the Warmest of Regards,

      R.Q.

      Hello Laurie,

      Pleased that you liked some of the verse here, and thanks for your implicit concern. Indeed writing can be a great salve for pain, though yet to be proven to be a panacea for all ails.

      Addressing your question ( no, I don't mind at all ): Yes, I do vociferate similar utterance in the written word, as in speech,( hey, I'm nothing special, just a regular guy ) but toned down a great deal so as not to alienate the listener - usually reserved for women I like, and some of the best poetry I've read has been written by an experienced heart.

      I think you write lovely poetry Laurie, and the longer you write, hopefully, the more piercing and incisive its evolution should become - just an opinion :)

      Thank you for flying by and enjoy a marvellous evening.

      Dear Anna,

      The light has already begun to dawn again; I can already see such beautiful rays, shining with the appellations of Deergha, Martin, Faith, Kim, Laurie, Anna and Jamie - a perfect seven.....seven molten beacons to bind broken pieces.

      Thank you for such encouraging, hopeful and uplifting sentiments, and I trust that life is being good to you Anna, and making you feel glad to be alive.

      With Kind Regards,

      Hi Kim,

      You are so right, and thank you for coming by with such beauty. I always liked Ghostbusters as a kid, so this slimer is getting boxed lol ;)

      Hi Wetnosedogs!,

      You snook in under the wire, otherwise I would have mentioned you as one of those priceless sunbeams which stand out as a beacon, and helps, with molten suture to bind, which I shall do now :)

      I certainly hope you and your fleecy crew are well and happy, and yes, life is O.K. at the mo, thanks for asking.

      Dear Romeos,

      Thank you so much for your addendum to my hub this day, and I am pleased that your feel well enough to visit my hub space and leave such thoughts, by the way, with which I agree 100%! You brought smiles with those dinner choices lol.

      It is ironic that you have written such in your comment here, for I have a hub warming on this very subject about women ... that is all I will say at the moment. True beauty comes from the heart, and all the outer beauty in the world matters not when the heart is not pure. As that old song says, "A pretty face does not make a pretty heart" ... well, it actually states in poor grammar, "A pretty face don't make no pretty heart" lol I guess it sounds better in the song?

      I am glad you are up and at it this day still commenting despite the great pangs deep into your heart. A lot of times during these times of great despair or brokenness, great poetry is written out of such.

      I am keeping you in my prayers for the Lord to place that One he has planned for you right on your doorstep and she will be like no other you have met before, for you, and all, deserve to know of this true love. True love never dies. I know you will know of such in this lifetime, so please never give up hope.

      Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Dear Faith,

      You're welcome, and glad to raise a smile :)

      I'll have to check out that Hub of yours you mention - sounds fascinating, and yeah, Robert Palmer had it sussed in ' Doctor, doctor '.

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful considerations, and I'll certainly remain hopeful of that elusive Miss Wonderful, should a miracle ever exist lol.

      Sending Warm Regards your way,
