Bemused He Sits (poem)

Updated on August 9, 2013

Bemused he sits and wonders all alone

Refused the reason that it came to this

-

Entwined in bitter words had made him blind

Forlorn the heart which gave such mischief birth

Consigned to bear the weight of this mistake

Reborn the sweetness of their memories

-

Recall the echoes of the moments shared

Beside the dreams they made along the way

Enthrall each whisper flowing from those eyes

Applied in making time itself their slave

-

Aglow was promised sky the day they met

Unreal this treasure which was heaven sent

Although unsure what future laid ahead

Ideal had its beginning with a kiss

Luther!

      I love that word "Bemused" and I have learned to not comment until you have added your imagery and video choice. So, I shall return : )

      Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Luther Vandross--we lost a great singer.

      "A House is Not a Home", written and recorded by Burt Bacharack who is one of the best song writers who ever lived.

      A young lover wrapped in the thoughts of what could have been. A truth, a reality and shame.

      Good job, Martin.

      This is a really cleverly constructed poem.
