A World Asunder (poem)

Updated on May 20, 2013

A heart alone to wonder

What spell had it been under

To bear the pains of blunder

And lose so much to plunder

To set a world asunder

-

The season was set singing

Through lover’s hearts was ringing

To bear the pains of blunder

Was someone else’s stinging

With so much promise bringing

-

A heart alone to wonder

Was she what he was after

To fill the days with laughter

And happiness hereafter

A dream in heaven’s rafter

-

Those moments blossoms flowered

What spell had it been under

This feeling so empowered

Over reason it towered

And truth would be soon devoured

-

Within a time then tender

Past purpose or surrender

A scar a heart would render

And lose so much to plunder

As love had turned offender

-

Soon tears would be an ocean

Escape there gave no notion

Shear madness was in motion

And offered up a potion

To set a world asunder

      Sometimes, love is not what it is cracked up to be when the wrong person comes along. We all learn.

      Love the way you expressed the thoughts, but the mechanics are interesting, too - it must have taken ages finding all those rhymes!

      Mhatter99....why do I get the feeling of underlying issues gone awry ?

      This mindset bothers me, hopefully it's just a style you are experimenting with.....very deep and thought provoking ...whoa...

      Pain and disappointment has never been spoken as sadly

      as your words proclaim.

      You are a great talent in the world of poetry.

      There is a saying that goes like this "Give unto Caesar what's due to Caesar", and this is exactly what I will do! Mhatter, I am giving you the uttermost respect you deserve for being such a great Poet. This piece is very deep, sensational and emotional! Keep up the good work.

      It helps to know you are happily married, Martin. So many of your poems revolve around broken hearts. Sad, but always beautifully written.

      This is beautifully sad and well-penned.

      My favorite lines are :

      Within a time then tender

      Past purpose or surrender

      A scar a heart would render

      And lose so much to plunder

      As love had turned offender

      Oh, me, so sad and mysterious again. I want to know what went wrong and changed everything? What truth. I know, I know, it is a poem. So intense and profound.

      Now, if the truth is death, then I am sorry dear heart.

      Voted up +++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper
