Bemused He Sits (poem)

Updated on August 30, 2017

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 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.

      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 : )
